WEBINAR: The European Union's Trade Secrets Directive

Wed. November 28, 2018
10:00 am - 11:00 am


Join Ogletree Deakins, a member of the EACCNY on a webinar to learn about the protection of trade secrets and intellectual property under the European Union's Trade Secrets Directive.

Developing and maintaining effective and efficient trade secret protection policies and practices can be challenging in our increasingly digitized world. The European Union’s Trade Secrets Directive, which all member countries were required to implement, is intended to protect against the unlawful obtaining, use, and disclosure of business secrets. In addition, a bill recently introduced in the German parliament would add new protections, including a narrowing of the definition of “trade secrets.”

Join this webinar as attorneys from Ogletree's U.S., Berlin, Paris, and London offices provide an overview of recent developments and offer insight on what employers need to know about protecting their valuable trade secrets and intellectual property.
