According to recent studies, 59% of employees admit to taking valuable company data from their employer at or around the time of termination. The cost of trade secret theft to the United States economy is staggering, with annual estimated losses between 160 to 480 billion dollars. Fortunately, on May 11, 2016, President Obama signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 into law, thereby creating significant new protections for companies to mitigate these risks. This program will provide an overview of this important new federal law, contrast it to existing New York law, and provide practical steps that practitioners can use, including use of non-compete agreements, to protect their clients from trade secret theft.
