Key Issues in Cross-Border Trade Secret Protection and Litigation

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT

Trade secret protection provides an alternative avenue to protect company investments in technology innovation and its marketplace advantage. But not everything that is considered company confidential is necessarily a trade secret, and when confronted with a misappropriation event, having a grounded understanding of the scope of trade secret protection and how to enforce those rights is necessary for making prudent business and litigation decisions. In this session, practitioners from the UK and U.S. will discuss 1) what is a trade secrets; 2) an overview of trade secret protection; 3) tactical considerations to asserting a lawsuit involving trade secret misappropriation; and 4) jurisdiction and venue considerations for suing.

This webinar is part of “Conversations on Cross-Border IP Protection and Enforcement,” a three-part seminar hosted by Robins Kaplan LLP and Lewis Silkin LLP on April 13, 20, and 27, 2021. In this series, seasoned lawyers from the U.S. and UK will share perspectives on cross-border IP issues related to standard essential patents and FRAND, trade secret litigation, and data disputes in the U.S., UK, EU, and beyond.
