This is also a trend internationally. These initiatives will make it easier for employees and government agencies to bring pay claims against employers and may expose employers to public scrutiny as well as increased litigation risks and costs. While it remains to be seen how the Trump administration will pursue these issues at the ...

If trade secrets misappropriation claims can be brought by non-owners, what should companies do to manage risk?

by Caroline Simons and Tierra D. Piens | May.20.2020

Last week, we examined the recent Third Circuit decision in Advanced Fluid Systems, which held that a trade secrets plaintiff did not need to be an owner or a licensee of the alleged trade secrets to bring a state law misappropriation claim under Pennsylvania’s UTSA—all that was required was that the plaintiff had “lawful possession” of the trade secrets. In so holding, the Third Circuit added to the weight of the Fourth Circuit’s similar analysis of Maryland’s UTSA in DTM Research, L.L.C. v. AT&T Corp., 245 F.3d 327 (4th Cir. 2001).
