The American Intellectual Property Law Association’s Trade Secret Summit will be held virtually this year. The Summit will consist of two 45-minute presentations every Wednesday beginning on August 12 and ending on September 2. Erik Weibust is Vice Chair of the AIPLA’s Trade Secret Committee, which hosts the Summit each year, and Scott Humphrey will be moderating a panel this year entitled “The Use of Litigation Funding in Trade Secret Cases,” with panelists from two major litigation funders, Longford Capital and Omni Bridgeway. This panel discussion will cover several of the topics discussed in our April 13th blog post, “Protecting Trade Secrets Without Breaking the Bank (Or even Negatively Affecting Profits),” which was subsequently republished in the Intellectual Property & Technology Law Journal. After each session, there will be 30 minutes of virtual networking complete with breakout rooms to make the networking more fun and effective. Participants will be able to register for the entire series or for individual days. More information to follow, including registration, when it is available.
