Please join the Litigation Section of The California State Bar for a trade secret CLE event and social mixer hosted by Crowell & Moring. On May 11, 2016, President Obama signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (“DTSA”). The DTSA creates a civil private right of action in federal court for trade secret misappropriation. Among many interesting aspects of the DTSA is the availability of seizure orders upon ex parte application in extraordinary circumstances. At this session, our panel will discuss strategic and practical considerations for trade secret actions after the DTSA.
