Labor and Employment partner Mark Terman wrote an article for Inside Counsel titled, “A litigator’s perspective on trade secret protection programs.” Mark encourages companies to implement a trade secret protection program that deters and limits trade secret misappropriation, and outlines its key elements.

He advises that companies identify their most confidential and proprietary information, have any personnel who may come into contact with trade secrets or confidential information sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), and conduct exit interviews and ask employees to sign an acknowledgement of continuing confidentiality obligations. He also advises executing NDAs with outsiders who may come into contact with company trade secrets, and working with both inside and outside counsel to develop and improve the trade secret program.
