Course Description

In 2016, Congress enacted the most significant trade secret reform legislation in several decades. The Defend Trade Secrets Act amends the Economic Espionage Act of 1996 to give original federal jurisdiction to trade secret litigation.

Join Washington D.C. employment lawyer, Robert Fitzpatrick, as he dissects this controversial law, taking us through its principal provisions and highlighting areas that attorneys need to be particularly aware of, including the hot button provision allowing the ex parte seizure of property subject to litigation.
