Happy Birthday to the Defend Trade Secrets Act: A One-Year Retrospective

Blank Rome's Houston, NYC, Philadelphia, Princeton, and D.C. offices

Please join Blank Rome’s Trade Secret and Competition group for a cross-office briefing looking back on the impact that the Defend Trade Secrets Act has had during its first year in existence. Have any parties successfully used its extraordinary ex parte seizure provision? Has there been a major shift in trade secrets law now that it is the subject of a federal statute? We will discuss answers to these questions and more.

In addition, we will be joined by experts in the field of digital forensic analysis who will discuss how exponential advances in technology have made the theft of trade secrets much easier, and have complicated the defense of these actions. If the terms BYOD, iCloud, Dropbox, Evernote,, Tresorit, and OwnCloud are a mystery to you, you will want to join us for this engaging program.
