Trade Secrets, Covenants, and Employee Movement

June 19, 2009 - NYC

Offered in conjunction with Cornell Law School

An Advanced Course

As employees seek new employment after downsizing and restructuring, taking knowledge with them from their previous employer, how can employers protect their intellectual property and employees continue to build their careers?

Recent decisions have clarified whether and under what circumstances employers can restrict future employment and enjoin former employees from utilizing alleged trade secret information.

This advanced workshop will discuss emerging theories for enforcement and denial of injunctive relief, including IBM v. Apple and Marsh v. Aon, inevitable disclosure, judicial estoppel, and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

It assumes that participants will be familiar with basic concepts in this developing area.
