About the Program

In today’s fast-paced business environment, intellectual property (IP) reigns supreme. Among the various forms of IP, trade secrets hold a distinct advantage, offering a competitive edge that’s both elusive and invaluable. Yet, in an era marked by technological advancements and increased connectivity, safeguarding these trade secrets poses a significant challenge.

As innovators and custodians of proprietary information, organizations continually face the challenge of mitigating the risks associated with trade secret misappropriation. The repercussions of such breaches can be severe, ranging from financial losses to legal entanglements and reputational damage. In this context, the ability to detect and respond to trade secret violations effectively (including via litigation) is paramount.

Join Seyfarth partners, alongside guest speaker Dan Fuller, Managing Director of StoneTurn, as we explore the intricacies of forensic examinations and their crucial role in protecting trade secrets and pursuing claims against wrongdoers when they are misappropriated. Through real-world case studies and practical examples, our Trade Secrets, Computer Fraud, and Non-Competes and eDiscovery and Information Governance team will equip you with the knowledge and strategies needed to bolster your IP protection efforts.
