Fairly Competing, Episode 7: Trade Secret Roundtable on Developments and Emerging Issues (NERA Economic Consulting Program, Part 2)

This episode is a departure from our usual. We are making available (through this episode and the last) Trade Secret Roundtable on Developments and Emerging Issues, a program presented by NERA Economic Consulting at which John, Ben, and Russell were panelists, along with Dr. Stephanie Demperio and Vicki Cundiff.

In our last episode, part one of the program, we covered what satisfies the reasonable efforts requirement and considerations in early case assessment, including when and how to involve an expert.

In today’s episode, part two of the program, we cover how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted trade secret litigation and new developments in noncompete legislation and the expected impact on trade secrets litigation.
