Counsel Anne Elise Herold Li will be speaking at the 2017 BIO International Convention on a panel titled, “Keeping it Under Wraps: Protecting, Asserting and Creating Value from Your Trade Secret” that will begin at 1:45 pm on June 21.
The 2017 BIO International Convention will take place June 19 – 22 at the San Diego Convention Center.
Trade secrets are valuable IP assets and can create significant revenue opportunities for companies. Their importance in today’s global economy is growing in an age of digitalization and data sharing. So much so that on May 11, 2016, Congress passed the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA). The DTSA is the product of years of growing concern over the threats to trade secrets in the information economy where companies have lost value due to the loss of trade secrets. This panel will discuss best practices for protecting company innovation and trade secret processes, data and communications in business transactions and day-to-day operations. Particular attention will be focused on best practices to maintain trade secrets, assert trade secrets under the DTSA and recommended language for employee agreements so that they comply with this new law.
