Along with the current exponential growth of trade secret litigation is the increase in the number of trade secret cases being mediated. Companies, especially large ones, realize that intellectual property litigation is costly, slow, and uncertain. They want a cheaper and faster way to resolve conflicts. With mediation, cases may be resolved in an early stage under less hostile situations and at a lower cost. It is perceived as an effective mechanism in making best decisions and, therefore, getting the best possible result.
However, issues surrounding the accusation of theft make it challenging for concerned parties to reach agreement during mediation. Being well-versed in Trade Secret mediation rules and strategies can help in preparing for mediation and in approaching difficulties that may arise.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of Trade Secret Mediations in 2016. They will also offer the best practices in mediating Trade Secret cases.
Key topics include:
· Mediating Trade Secret Disputes
· Optimal Time to Engage in Mediation
· Selecting the Mediator
· Mediation Preparation
· Defining the Trade Secrets to Be Protected for Injunctive Purposes
· Resolving Potential Difficulties
· State and Federal Legislation Forecasts
· Compliance and Litigation Risks
· Best Practices
