The Defend Trade Secrets Act has been described as the most significant expansion of federal intellectual property law since the Lanham Act was enacted in 1946. Moreover, trade secret litigation options will considerably expand in an aim to reduce trade secret misappropriation.

The second annual MIP Trade Secrets Forum 2017 analysed the steps taken to ensure delegates were fully prepared and understand their responsibilities as in-house counsel for the new legislation.

The programme encouraged participation and debate on all the pertinent topics relating to the newly enacted Defend Trade Secrets Act. The MIP Trade Secrets Forum 2017 brought together leaders in corporations, industry associations and leading legal experts to discuss and impart valuable knowledge.
