Aarti Wilson Authors Article on Expecting the Unexpected with Trade Secrets
An article written by Aarti Wilson, senior associate, was published in the July/August 2019 edition of Landslide, a publication of the American Bar Association Section of Intellectual Property Law. The article, “What to Expect When You’re (Not) Expecting Misappropriation,” provides tips for protecting trade secrets and litigating misappropriation claims.
Since the enactment of the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, trade secret litigation is on the rise. Aarti addresses what employers need to know to protect their valuable trade secrets before misappropriation happens, how to identify and handle misappropriation when it does happen, and the alternatives to trade secret litigation that companies may want to consider.
Aarti regularly represents plaintiffs and defendants in trade secret and employee mobility matters. Her last piece of advice in the article: “Anyone who is considering filing or who is potentially facing trade secret misappropriation claims should consult an experience lawyer for advice.”
