November 04, 2019 {ml-event-to} November 05, 2019

Morgan Lewis IP partner Seth Gerber recently spoke at The Sedona Conference Working Group 12 on Trade Secrets Annual Meeting 2019. The Sedona Conference Working Group Series was established to pursue in-depth study of tipping point issues in the areas of antitrust law, complex litigation, and intellectual property rights, with the goal of producing high-quality, non-partisan commentary and guidance of immediate, practical benefit to the bench and bar. The mission of Working Group 12 is to develop consensus and non-partisan principles for best practices in managing trade secrets litigation.

Seth’s panel,“Trade Secret Issues Across International Borders,” examined the extraterritorial reach of US courts in trade secret matters, including issues of jurisdiction and recourse; cross-border access to evidence; and the impact of criminal charges against foreign actors.
