CRA is a proud sponsor of this event.

Join us for our complimentary, invitation-only briefing where expert panelists will discuss recent developments, key challenges, and best practices in managing and protecting trade secrets – which are more important than ever as a source of competitive advantage, yet also under siege as never before. The program will feature a variety of presentations designed to help ensure your company is prepared, including:

• Determining best forum for civil enforcement—federal court under DTSA, state court, arbitration, FTC or ITC
• Criminal prosecution and cooperation with the government
• Global geopolitical, national security and state actor challenges
• Discovery and trial strategy
• Non-compete clauses, restrictive covenants and covenants not to compete are the subject of intensive review by companies and individuals and their lawyers in order to avoid disputes. Cautionary tale: State law varies widely
• Damage award trends and forms of non-monetary relief
• Key takeaways from notable case decisions (e.g., Appian Corp. v. Pegasystems; Ajaxo v. E*Trade; Epic Systems v. Tata; Motorola v. Hytera; Syntel v. Trizetto, etc.)
• Corporate best practices for managing and protecting trade secrets
• Remote workforce: risk management & new protective measures
