Loeb & Loeb LLP is pleased to announce that partner Adam Kelly will be speaking at Law Seminars International's One-Day Intensive Seminar on Protecting and Optimizing the Value of Trade Secrets in the 21st Century on a panel titled, "Patents versus Trade Secrets: The New Calculus in Light of Recent AIA Legislation and Decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court."
From event website:
Information is often a company's most valuable asset. Identifying and valuing a company's valuable confidential information, for example for commercialization or an impending corporate transaction, can be difficult. Protecting that business information has become one of the most important, and increasingly difficult, challenges facing modern business.
Keeping business information safe from the "competitive intelligence" efforts of competitors has taken on a new urgency. Globalization has broadened the landscape in which these issues arise, and impending new federal trade secrets legislation will alter it further. In this one-day intensive seminar, some of the most noted experts address the state-of-the-art in current trade secrets issues.
