New Defend Trade Secrets Act

Litigation partner Ron Coleman has been a leading voice in support of the recently enacted federal Defend Trade Secrets Act. The DTSA, signed into law on May 11, 2016, creates the first ever federal civil cause of action for misappropriation of trade secrets. Ron was asked to join a group of 18 experienced trade secret litigators from law firms across the country to co-sign a letter to Congressional sponsors urging passage of this legislation, which was entered into the Congressional Record as part of debate on the bill. See the Letter Here He also developed and moderated a program at last month’s ABA Section of Litigation Annual Conference entitled “Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act – New Options and Strategies for Trade Secret Litigation.” The enactment of the DTSA will bring many changes and different strategic choices to trade secret litigation, including access to the nationwide reach of the federal courts and powerful new remedies like an ex parte seizure order to recover misappropriated trade secret materials. Parker Hudson’s knowledgeable and experienced trade secret litigators can help both plaintiffs and defendants navigate this new world of trade secret litigation.
