On Saturday, February 18, 2023, I will be speaking at the American Bar Association’s Corporate Counsel CLE Seminar in Orlando on “Tips from the Trenches: Hot Issues and Best Practices in Trying a Trade Secrets Claim under the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA)” with Nicole Galli of ND Galli Law LLC, Benesch’s Scott Humphrey, and DecisionQuest’s Ann Greeley, Ph.D. 

This presentation will cover the changing paradigm of trade secret litigation, which is increasingly becoming more damages-oriented and therefore, more likely to be tried to a jury. We will focus on the forces causing this change and what outside counsel and in-house counsel need to do when deciding whether they want to go proceed with bench trial or jury trial. For more on this trend in trade secret trials, see my recent posts (here and here) from last December.

I’m delighted for the opportunity to speak at this Corporate Counsel CLE Seminar. For over 30 years, in-house and outside counsel have come together each winter to learn, network, and share expertise about the unique challenges they face in representing corporations of all types. Designed by and for general counsel and their outside law firms, this innovative seminar takes place over three days. The Seminar offers a mix of CLEs by industry thought leaders, business meetings, luncheons, dinners, receptions, and the opportunity to connect with some of the best in-house lawyers, outside litigation counsel, and judges in the country.

You can register for this CLE here. Hope you can join me.
