United States: Boston Breakfast Briefing: Change Is In The Air: 2016 Developments In Trade Secret And Restrictive Covenant Law In Massachusetts And Beyond, And What To Expect In 2017
Last Updated: December 7 2016

There were significant developments and a near miss in trade secret and restrictive covenant law both federally and in Massachusetts in 2016, including the passage of the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act and the failure again of the Massachusetts legislature to pass noncompete reform legislation.  In addition, the Obama White House issued a "Call to Action" with respect to noncompete agreements in its waning days.  Understanding the impact of these changes, and what to expect in 2017, will help your company safeguard its most valuable assets and maintain its advantage over competitors.

On Wednesday, December 14th at 8:00 a.m. Eastern, the Boston office is hosting a Breakfast Briefing entitled "Change is in the Air: 2016 Developments in Trade Secret and Restrictive Covenant Law in Massachusetts and Beyond, and What to Expect in 2017." Attorneys Katherine Perrelli, Erik Weibust, and Dallin Wilson will discuss recent developments in restrictive covenant and trade secrets law, and what to expect in 2017.

The program will focus on practical responses to the following issues and questions:

  • What you need to know about the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016
  • What to expect with respect to noncompete reform in Massachusetts in 2017
  • What does the White House's Call to Action mean for Massachusetts businesses, and will it stick with the new Administration?
  • Important decisions of 2016 in Massachusetts and beyond
