IPO IP Chat Channel WebinarInsider Threat: Employee Mobility and Trade SecretsWednesday January 20

  2 PM ET  

Litigation against former insiders accounts for a significant portion of all trade secret cases. Yet these disputes are difficult to win. Our panel will discuss best practices for safeguarding trade secret and other confidential corporate information from appropriation by employees, as well as contractors, and consultants.

War stories from a litigator will highlight how not meeting this high bar will cause a plaintiff’s case to fail. An employment law specialist will discuss emerging issues in non-compete agreements, such as the need to give current employees a bonus or profit-sharing consideration in exchange for signing a tougher non-compete. In-house counsel of a global technology company will give advice for surviving in a world without non-competes. Finally, the panel will consider the flip side of the issue: best practices for avoiding a lawsuit when hiring an employee from a competitor.
