On May 11, 2016, President Barack Obama signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) into law. Join us for lunch on Tuesday, June 21 to learn how this legislation impacts you and your business.
This law affects:
Employers and employment counsel due to the DTSA’s new mandatory notice provisions concerning the DTSA’s whistleblower protections,
Chief Technology Officers and intellectual property counsel because of the DTSA’s impact on the choice between patent or trade secret protection schemes for your intellectual property, and
Any business with significant trade secret assets because of the DTSA’s new federal trade secret misappropriation claim, potential augmented damages awards and unprecedented ex parte seizure provision.
Join two experienced Pierce Atwood attorneys, Suzanne King and Larry Varn, as they discuss the practical impacts of the DTSA. Using real world examples to illustrate key business considerations, the speakers will present this important topic in a lively, interactive format.
