What's My Trade Secret Misappropriation Claim Worth?

June 13, 2022

9:00 AM to 10:00 AM

IP/Antitrust/Regulation Track

Presented by the Intellectual Property Section

About the Program

The Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 provided parties a private right of action for asserting trade secret misappropriation in federal courts. Yet, the DTSA did not preempt trade secret misappropriation claims from being brought under state law. This has led to a rise in case filings involving trade secret misappropriation claims, while also creating new and different methods for assessing damages. This program is designed to provide perspectives on the valuation of a trade secret claim from three perspectives—outside litigation counsel, economist, and in-house counsel. The program will address how to assess potential damages arising from a trade secrets claim and how to apply that valuation to achieve better business and litigation results for clients.

You Will Learn

•    The current legal framework (state and federal) covering  trade secret misappropriation claims
•    Approaches and strategies for assessing potential damages for such claims
•    Suggested practices for applying potential damages estimates to drive business and litigation strategies
