“Procedurally Speaking:  A Discussion on the Identification of Trade Secrets During Litigation and the Proper Form of Injunction Orders”
 
Part of the AIPLA TRADE SECRET LAW COMMITTEE EDUCATION SERIES
presented by:
 
Kenneth J. Vanko 
 
What?
 
In this two-part presentation, Mr. Vanko will discuss important procedural issues that frequently arise during trade secrets litigation. The first part of the presentation will focus on the importance of properly identifying trade secrets during a lawsuit. Mr. Vanko will address identification considerations for both plaintiffs and defendants, along with suggested best practices and important case developments. The second half of the presentation will shift gears and focus on the proper form and scope of injunction orders. The discussion here will center on Rule 65’s procedural requirements for “specificity” and definiteness with respect to the sought-after injunction. Mr. Vanko will discuss the implications of seeking an injunction prohibiting the use of a trade secret, as well as broader injunctions that prohibit commercial activity beyond mere use.

Introduction of Presenter: 
 
Kenneth J. Vanko, Clingen Callow & McLean, L.L.C.
 
 Mr. Vanko’s practice focuses on competition litigation, particularly in the areas of restrictive covenants, trade secret misappropriation, employee raiding, fiduciary duty compliance, partnership dissolution and dissociation, deceptive trade practices, and shareholder direct and derivative actions relating to deadlock, oppression and freeze-outs.
 
Mr. Vanko counsels and advises employees, executives and business owners on issues pertaining to competitive business transitions in a wide range of industries.  His focus is to address potential transition disputes early in the process to avoid and manage risk from an optimal position.
 
Mr. Vanko also coordinates and manages the firm’s chancery litigation practice and has extensive experience prosecuting and defending proceedings for injunctions and other equitable relief in state and federal courts. Finally, he drafts and negotiates contracts related to employment, professional services, licensing, distribution, and intellectual property protection.
 
We are working with AIPLA to see if CLE may be offered for this presentation.
