ABA Section of International Law 2017 Spring Meeting
Paul Hastings Jeff Pade will be participating in a panel during the upcoming ABA Section of International Law 2017 Spring Meeting.
Trade Secrets and Cross-Border Commercial TransactionsThursday April 27, 20179:00 - 10:30AM, South American A
The incorporation of trade secret substantive law and enforcement provisions into TPP and TTIP free trade agreements, and the enactment of the Defense of Trade Secrets Act in the US, has raised the issue of cross-border trade secrets to the forefront in international business transactions. Will the “US model” of trade secret protection be successfully exported to countries with different cultures and legal regimes? Will “reverse engineering” and independent “clean room development models” become more widely practiced? The panelists will consider the historical development of trade secret law from the time of the Industrial Revolution and identify its current role, and will provide a comparative view of how trade secrets are protected and enforced in the US and the EU.
