Featuring: Frederick W. AlworthElizabeth Cowit

This session will explore recent trends in litigation brought under the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA), highlighting potential strategies for plaintiffs asserting DTSA claims and defense of such claims. Panelists will review recent caselaw interpreting the DTSA, discussing such questions as: what have courts found to qualify as trade secrets under the DTSA, what fails to meet the legal definition, whether trade secret owners have the burden to prove trade secret status, and what measures have been found reasonable to keep trade information secret. Crisis management, expedited trade secret litigation strategy, and recent litigation outcomes will also be discussed.
