Katherine E. Perrelli Presenting at Boston Bar Association Trade Secrets Symposium
“Non-Compete Agreements and Trade Secrets: 190th General Court Bills, Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act ‘Preemption’?”
Katherine Perrelli, chair of Seyfarth’s national Litigation Department, will participate as a panelist in the Boston Bar Association’s program on “Non-Compete Agreements and Trade Secrets: 190th General Court Bills, Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act ‘Preemption’?” Ms. Perrelli joins an esteemed panel including legislators from the Massachusetts House of Representatives and State Senate.
Since 2009 the Boston Bar Association has hosted this symposium bringing together drafters, sponsors, supporters and critics of state bills to reform the use of employee non-compete agreements (ENCAs) and, separately, alternatively or complementarily, to enact the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA).
This presentation will discuss the substance of and differences between the bills and the reasons and possible reconciliation, as well as the role of the proposed UTSA in view of the DTSA.
