Digital technology has made it increasingly easy for employees and competitors to steal valuable trade secrets.  Hiring an employee from a competitor involves risk as a result of the employee’s non-compete and other restrictive covenants, and access to the competitor’s trade secrets, customers and employees. 

A case study, two teams of in-house and outside counsel, representing the former and new employer respectively, will highlight:

issues to consider & most effective strategies in protecting against theft of trade secrets when employees leave and go to a competitor, and steps to minimize the risks to the competitor. 

A forensic investigative consultant will provide practical pointers to help you protect trade secrets.  Among other issues to be addressed:

  • Protecting Company Trade Secrets
  • Measures to Consider after Employees Leave
  • Hiring Competitors’ Employees 
  • Strategies to Effectively and Efficiently Prosecute and Defend Trade Secrets Claims
