Getting Down to the Particulars

Associate Alex Harrell authored an article for the September 2019 edition of the Texas Bar Journal on the Reasonable Particularity Standard and how it is applied to trade secret disclosures.

While courts in many states have ordered plaintiffs to identify their alleged trade secrets with “reasonable particularity” at the outset of the litigation, the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act imposes no such obligation and no Texas appellate court has adopted or rejected this approach.

Harrell’s article “Getting Down to the Particulars” describes the Reasonable Particularity Standard, the arguments against it and how it is applied in trade secret cases across Texas trial courts.
