On Tuesday, January 30, 2024, I will be giving a one-hour Webinar/CLE for the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) entitled “Trade Secret and Restrictive Covenant Law Year in Review.”
As readers of this blog know, the number of trade secret and restrictive cases continues to grow each year. As a result, trade secret disputes and verdicts have dominated the news, as juries have awarded $2 billion to Appian Corp., $65 million against Goodyear Tire & Rubber, and $105 million against Ford Motor Company, only to see some of those verdicts reduced or eliminated by the courts. At the same time, federal and state legislators, as well as the Federal Trade Commission, are aggressively moving to curtail the use of restrictive covenants and non-disclosure agreements. In this seminar, I’ll give an update on these and other important legal and legislative developments, as well as practical tips for employers and businesses to minimize their risk and protect themselves in the event of litigation.
You can register for this CLE here. It starts at 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Hope you can join me.
