Protecting trade secrets in the EU and US

On 9 October we'll be hosting the next edition of our LimeGreen Live webinar series - focusing on trade secrets in Europe and the US.

Background

The recent EU Trade Secrets Directive impacts on the way that businesses protect valuable proprietary information. The new rules being implemented in each EU country aim to create a minimum level of trade secrets protection across the EU. Certain countries will still offer stronger protection than others and challenges remain in implementing the Directive in each jurisdiction.

The US Defend Trade Secrets Act was introduced in 2016 with the aim of improving the rights of claimants to sue for trade secret infringement in federal court. Since its introduction, there have been several high profile examples of the DTSA enabling claimants to defend sensitive information and prevent its misuse.

Our focus

In our webinar we will look at how the US and EU member states are handling trade secret protection: what the differences are, where you might face challenges and how best to proceed in securing adequate protection and enforcing your rights throughout the US and the EU.
