Foley Partner James Dasso will host the second seminar in a continuing webinar series titled, "European-U.S. Web Conference Series: Trade Secrets" on September 7, 2016.

In today’s knowledge-based economy, it has become increasingly important for companies to protect their technological and human investments. The protection of intellectual property as trade secrets often presents an attractive alternative to seeking patent protection.

The second edition of this series will cover legal issues concerning businesses engaged in European-U.S. commerce. It will provide an overview of state-of-the-art trade secret protection, management, and litigation for businesses adhering to both U.S. and European guidelines.

Topics will include:

  • Developments in trade secret law 
  • The recently enacted federal Defend Trade Secrets Act 
  • Comparison of trade secret protection and patent protection 
  • Proactive strategies to protect and manage trade secrets, including employee agreements
