Speaking Engagement | December.13.2021 - December.14.2021 | 8:30am - 1:00pm (Mountain Standard Time)

Phoenix, AZ – Kimpton Hotel Palomar

Orrick Partner Daniel Forester is speaking at the upcoming Sedona WG12 Conference, serving as a panelist on the “Sharing Trade Secrets With Other Organizations” session on Monday, December 13, 2021.

The mission of Working Group 12 is to develop consensus and nonpartisan principles for managing trade secret litigation and well-vetted guidelines for consideration in protecting trade secrets, recognizing that every organization has and uses trade secrets, that trade secret disputes frequently intersect with other important public policies such as employee mobility and international trade, and that trade secret disputes are litigated in both state and federal courts.

The primary focus of this annual meeting will be for current WG12 drafting teams to lead a document-based dialogue to obtain member comment and advance the following draft commentaries toward publication for public comment:

  • Governance and Management of Trade Secrets
  • Monetary Remedies in Trade Secret Disputes

and also to form and launch the following commentary drafting team efforts:

  • What Can and Cannot Be a Protectable Trade Secret?
  • Sharing Trade Secrets With Other Organizations
  • Forensic Issues in Trade Secret Disputes
  • Getting In and Staying Out of Trouble: Ethical Issues in Trade Secret Cases
