Three Merchant & Gould attorneys will be featured speakers at a CLE hosted by the Tennessee Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel in Knoxville, Tenn. on October 28, 2015. Partners Rachel Zimmerman Scobie, from Merchant & Gould's Minneapolis office, and R. Bradford Brittain and John T. Winemiller from the Knoxville office will be giving a presentation entitled Safeguarding Trade Secrets: Tips and Tools for Identifying, Managing, and Protecting Confidential Business Information.
All companies have trade secrets, and all companies face the threat of trade secret misappropriation. Safeguarding those trade secrets can be an essential responsibility of in-house counsel. Key issues include:
- Differences between trade secret protection and patent protection
- The Uniform Trade Secrets Act and other legislative efforts to protect confidential business information
- Best practices for safeguarding trade secrets
- Trends in trade secrets litigation
Merchant & Gould is proud to sponsor this event.
