2014 was a transformative year for trade secret law in the U.S. and worldwide, and all signs point to more changes in the year ahead. Faegre Baker Daniels attorneys Randy Kahnke, Kerry Bundy and Ryan Long authored an article for Law360 in which they gave a year in review of developments over the past year regarding trade secret law.
In part one of their two-part series, the trio covered five big developments in 2014: the importance of identifying trade secrets early on in a litigation case; the increase in popular support for a civil trade secret law at the federal level; the fallout from the Bratz case; the importance of protecting trade secrets during litigation; and the ongoing trend of large settlements and awards in trade secret cases.
