On May 19, 2010, Seyfarth Shaw will continue its webinar series on trade secrets and restrictive covenant issues with a focus on California.
The third webinar of the 2010 series will focus on how California trade secret law is similar and diverse from other jurisdictions, including a discussion of the California Uniform Trade Secrets Act, trade secret identification requirements, remedies, and the interplay between trade secret law and Business and Professions Code Section 16600, which codifies California’s general prohibition of employee non-compete agreements. The webinar will also cover effective California trade secret protection policies and practices. Among the topics discussed will be
- Defining and understanding trade secrets in California
- Comparison between California trade secret law and other jurisdictions
- Protecting trade secret assets in California and remedies for trade secret misappropriation
- Appropriate policies and practices to effectively protect trade secrets, including hiring and termination protocols, a discussion regarding the use of restrictive covenants, and effective computer and physical security practices
Our panel consists of attorneys with significant experience advising clients on trade secret issues, including litigating trade secret cases, drafting protection agreements and conducting trade secret audits. CLE credit will be available for participants.*
