On Tuesday, September 24, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. Central, Seyfarth attorneys Mark Hansen, Jim McNairy, and Jessica Mendelson will present the ninth installment in our 2013 Trade Secrets webinar series. They will focus on ways in which California trade secret law is similar to 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.

Topics of discussion will include:

  •  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
  • The practical impact of preemption on protecting trade secrets and litigating misappropriation of trade secrets cases.
  • California’s strong public policy against non-compete provisions, and the types of agreements which are enforceable under California law

 There is no cost to access this program, however, registration is required.
