I want to inform you of an exciting new conference that may interest you.  It is my sincere pleasure to invite you to the first annual Non-Compete/Trade Secrets Conference.  This new conference is taking place February 24, 2017 in Denver.  You can read more about it on the conference website by clicking here.  Alternatively, here is the link to the conference flyer.

When and Where?
The conference will be held February 24, 2017 at the University of Denver Daniels College of Business Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management Conference and Event Center. More details are available on the conference website and attached brochure.

About What?
On October 25, 2016, following a trend accelerating across the country, the White House issued a Call to Action (CTA) urging states to enact non-compete reform. The CTA posits that non-compete agreements are overused, and that employers can protect their interests through a “host of other legal frameworks-including trade secrets protections.”

Coincidentally, Congress recently enacted the Defend Trade Secrets Acts (DTSA). If states are going to urge employers to rely more heavily on trade secret protection in lieu of using non-competes, it is imperative that the DTSA gets off on the right foot, particularly if it is to achieve its purpose of creating uniformity in the law.

Therefore, in the nascent stages of the DTSA, we are assembling nationally prominent practitioners, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and state and federal judges to discuss and analyze key aspects of the DTSA and best practices for non-compete and trade secret litigation.

Don’t miss the opportunity of have your voice heard! As we gather, our goal is to influence the formation of national policy governing trade secret law. At the conclusion of the conference, a collection of our panelists will work to synthesize the discussions and ideas into a comprehensive report to be utilized as a resource for courts interpreting and applying the DTSA. In the years to come, we will continue with our educational and policymaking objectives.

Who is speaking?
Featured speakers include:

  • Keynote Address from FBI Special Agent Gloria Harbold
  • A view from the Bench from Federal Judges Christine Arguello and Nina Wang, as well as State Court Judge Bruce Jones
  • In-house Panelists from Abbott Laboratories, Garmin International and TeleTech
  • Nationally Prominent Practitioners

CLE Credit Available
Sponsored by CLE International, I am happy to report that you can earn up to 7 hours MCLE Credit, including One hour of Ethics Credit. 

I look forward to seeing you at the beautiful University of Denver campus in February to further discuss this important topic.
