About this Webcast:
Trade secrets are often among an organization’s most prized assets. Losing them to international or domestic thieves or failing to take reasonable precautions to protect them from misappropriation can mean millions, even billions in lost revenue… or worse. From unscrupulous competitors to nefarious foreign powers skilled in cyber espionage, careless use of social media or disgruntled employees, our organizations’ treasured trade secrets are more vulnerable than ever.
Join us for a complimentary CLE-eligible webinar featuring two of the leading minds in the field of trade secret law, Attorneys Stuart H. Singer and David Quinto. Insights gained from a combined 60+ years of advising and litigating experience for major corporate clients are found in their leading treatise on the subject: Trade Secrets: Law and Practice (published by LexisNexis R), a sophisticated practitioner’s guide to bringing and defending trade secret claims. During the webinar they will discuss hot topics from their book, share practical insights and answer your questions.
