About

Federal and state legislatures have developed a certain stark inconsistency when addressing trade secrets and the protection of confidential and proprietary information. While enacting the Defend Trade Secrets Act and tightening trade secret protection and enforcement, federal and state governments are simultaneously attacking and scrutinizing employee noncompetition agreements and other post-employment obligations. Why the imbalance? Join us to explore the current state of trade secret enforcement, a discussion on the demise of the restrictive covenant, and practical enforcement and defense advice.
