The Defend Trade Secrets Act: Five Key Lessons; JDSupra, April 10, 2018

Pierce Atwood LLP, JDSupra; The Defend Trade Secrets Act: Five Key Lessons

"The DTSA is a valuable tool for employers.  Indeed, it is clear that the DTSA provides employers with an effective avenue into federal court for trade secret disputes. However, employers must be aware of what the DTSA does not do. It does not relieve the employer’s burden to defend its information, manage its information, or articulate the importance of its information. While the DTSA is an effective tool, courts will first look to the steps the plaintiff took to avoid the necessity of using it at all."
