Friends of our blog recently published a first-of-its-kind survey about how in-house counsel view various issues in trade secret law. Approximately 80 in-house counsel completed the 20-question survey, and the results were interesting. More than 75% of respondents said the risks to their company’s trade secrets have increased over the past 10 years, with 50% saying the risks have increased significantly. For another example, respondents described their company’s current and former employees as those most likely to try to steal that company’s trade secrets.

The survey methodology and its complete results were published in Law360. Here is the link. The primary authors were David Almeling and Darin Snyder.

Our blog posted a story on the survey in June 2017. We thank any of our readers who completed the survey and thereby contributed to the results.
