Litigation of alleged theft of trade secrets often involves significant dis-trust, argument, and anger between parties and their counsel. Often, in a desire to reduce costs, the plaintiff negotiates with the thief. Allegations of theft make resolution all the more difficult.
However, mediation often helps to resolve such cases at lower cost and under less hostile circumstances. Counsel often misunderstand what constitutes a "Trade Secret," fails to conduct a thorough investigation, delays in responding to opposing counsel, and has too high expectations for the outcome; thereby muddying the situation. A sound understanding of Trade Secret mitigation rules and procedures can help resolve disputes early, rapidly, and often at lower cost.
The Knowledge Group is producing a live, two hour webcast entitled Trade Secret Mediations in 2015: What You Need to Know in 2015 to help companies and their counsel better understand, manage, and resolve trade secret theft cases.
Key topics include:
• Fundamentals of Trade Secrets
• Trade Secret Dispute Resolution (Negotiation, Arbitration, and Mediation)
• Criminalization of Trade Secret Theft
• Choice-of-law Issues
• Mediating Trade Secret Disputes
• New and Pending State and Federal Legislation
