Trade secret law is a branch of intellectual property law that addresses the protection of proprietary information against unauthorized commercial use by others. Unlike other forms of intellectual property, such as patents, copyrights, and trademarks, organizations cannot register their trade secrets with the government to protect their proprietary information. The only way to ensure the protection of a trade secret is to keep the information confidential, and this can necessitate a variety of legal interventions. 

Lawyers practicing trade secret law should sign up for the AIPLA 2019 Trade Secret Law Summit at the American Express Company in New York City’s Financial District on March 21-22, 2019.

Lawyers will enjoy a practical and comprehensive CLE program designed to educate new and seasoned practitioners alike. It is more important than ever to learn the fundamentals of trade secret protection and what you and your clients need to do to protect your confidential information from cyber-attacks and trade secret theft.
