Seyfarth partners Robert Milligan and Kate Perrelli will lead a CLE program for the ABA IPCentral Conference during the ABA’s Annual Meeting in Boston on August 7th.

They are scheduled to be joined by in-house counsel Pamela Davidson from U.S. Foods, Karen Tompkins from Stryker, Lisa Seilheimer from CDW, and Jerry Cohen from Burns & Levinson LLP.

The panel will discuss recently passed trade secret legislation in Texas, New Jersey, and other jurisdictions, as well as the recent efforts to create a federal civil cause of action for trade secret theft and the recent attempt to ban non-compete agreements in Massachusetts. They will also discuss significant non-compete decisions in Illinois and Kentucky regarding the required consideration for non-competes. Panelists will also review recent cases on forum selection/choice of law, pleading standards, identification requirements, summary judgment, and damages.

Best practices for protecting trade secrets and risks to proprietary information, as well as the latest cases addressing reasonable secrecy measures will also be addressed.

The ABA-IPL Trade Secrets Committee will also provide the audience with its annual 2013/2014 survey of the latest developments in trade secrets and non-compete law.
