Employment Law Partner Discusses Future of American Innovation and Research Act

Law360 | January.08.2014

Employment law partner Michael Weil discussed the potential impact of the Future of American Innovation and Research Act (S. 1770) with Law360 in this article about trade secrets bills before the U.S. Congress.

“In many of the trade secrets cases that we see today, there is a foreign entity that's involved and it becomes very difficult to obtain jurisdiction over them, even just for conducting discovery,” Weil stated. “This bill would provide the jurisdiction over that foreign entity and allow us to bring them into court."
