What to Expect When You’re (Not) Expecting Misappropriation

    While a senior associate at Willenken, Aarti Wilson (currently corporate counsel at Amazon) published an article in the July/August 2019 edition of Landslide, a publication of the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law.

    The article provides tips for protecting trade secrets and litigating misappropriation claims.

    Since the enactment of the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, trade secret litigation is on the rise. The article addresses what employers need to know to protect their valuable trade secrets before misappropriation happens, how to identify and handle misappropriation when it does happen, and the alternatives to trade secret litigation that companies may want to consider.

    “Anyone who is considering filing or who is potentially facing trade secret misappropriation claims should consult an experienced lawyer for advice.”
