Recent news coverage surrounding Wikileaks and Edward Snowden has left companies wondering what all of their options are when their most sensitive trade secrets and proprietary information is misappropriated. Seyfarth attorneys Michael D. Wexler, Molly M. Joyce and Justin K. Beyer will present the twelfth and final installment in our 2013 Trade Secrets webinar series, focusing on criminal liability for trade secret misappropriation. The topics they will cover include:

  • Trade secret misappropriation: what it is and how does it happen
  • An introduction to criminal liability under Economic Espionage Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
  • A discussion of recent court decisions finding criminal liability for violation of these Acts
  • How to work with criminal prosecutors to compliment your civil claims for trade secret misappropriation
  • Best practices to avoid misappropriation and what to do when you suspect misappropriation has occurred, including a discussion of forensic investigation options

Our panel consists of attorneys with significant experience litigating trade secret issues, advising clients on trade secret protection, drafting confidentiality and restrictive covenant agreements, and conducting trade secret audits. This CLE is recommended for management, HR personnel and in-house counsel.
