Trade Secrets Investigations
1:15 pm - 2:30 pm
If you or a client suspect that they have been a victim of trade secret misappropriation, a thorough investigation is essential before taking any formal action. Likewise, if you or a client have been accused of trade secret misappropriation, a similarly thorough investigation is necessary before developing your response. This panel will explore the questions a proper investigation should seek to answer, potential resources and approaches to answering those questions, and the strategic and tactical choices that you will face along the way.

What do you expect to discuss during your panel?
The discussion will focus on the sources of data that need to be investigated and the techniques for reviewing and preserving that data. We will also discuss some of the strategic decisions that have to be made as both the victim of misappropriation and as a company that has been accused of misappropriating.
How will this discussion benefit practitioners?
The panel provides a helpful combination of perspectives. We have outside counsel, in-house counsel, and a third-party investigation vendor. Each will offer suggestions from their real-world experiences dealing with numerous trade secret investigations.
How will this panel discussion differ from other speaking events on this topic?
This is the only panel that will focus on the investigation aspect of trade secret disputes. Others focus on how to deal with the results of investigations. But only this panel will address the practical and strategic decisions associated with conducting the investigation.
