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

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).
