At Berman Fink Van Horn, we pride ourselves on providing legal counsel as well as tools and resources to help you at every stage of your business. Below are two resources I’d like to share with you to help you learn, understand and monitor important trends that can impact you and your business. Enjoy!

Trends in Trade Secret Litigation Report 2020:
The trade secret landscape continues to expand at an increasingly rapid pace – a trend likely to continue due to the implementation of the Defend Trade Secrets Act, developments in patent law, and the evolution of labor and employment litigation. Increased globalization, advancements in technology, and continued domestic concentration of service-based industries will also play a role. This report from our friends at Stout highlights multiple trends and observations that are highly relevant to the intellectual property and employment strategies of your business.

Noncompetes and Restrictive Covenants 2020: What Every Lawyer, Human Resources Professional, and Key Strategic Decision-maker Should Know:
Bringing together experts and thought leaders from around the country, this program by our friends at the Practicing Law Institute, starts with a level-setting of basic noncompete law, and then delves into nuanced and advanced issues from the perspectives of the employee, the former employer, and the new employer.
Note: I did have a role in this program as one of several presenters.

As always, please let me know if I can help.
