On Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 1 p.m. ET, I will be speaking with Nicole Galli of ND Galli Law LLC, Benesch’s Scott Humphrey, and DecisionQuest’s Michael Biek, Ph.D. for the Ohio State Bar Association’s CLE Live Interactive Webinar, “The Changing Shape of Trade Secret Trials: The Increasing Shift to Juries.”
Last year, juries awarded $2 billion to Appian Corp., $65 million against Goodyear Tire & Rubber and $105 million against Ford Motor Company in high profile trade secret cases. These big verdicts signal a potentially significant shift away from how trade secret cases have been traditionally litigated, as employers have previously relied on injunctions to prevent employees and others from taking their trade secrets. This webinar will address this potential paradigm shift in trade secret litigation and help trade secret owners and their lawyers better understand the forces contributing to this important development and what clients and lawyers should be doing to adapt to these changes.
