Epstein Becker Green attorneys are featured in "Uniform Trade Secrets Act: A State by State Guide," part of a special Labor and Employment supplement published by Practical Law Company. Epstein Becker Green, in conjunction with the Practical Law Company, recently wrote and published statewide guides on the non-compete laws of Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Virginia as well as on the trade secret laws of those states plus the District of Columbia.

Following is an excerpt from the guide:

Protection of trade secrets is essential to a company's capacity to gain economic advantage over its competitors. Misuse or disclosure of trade secrets can significantly damage the value of the information. The Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA) serves as model legislation for states to create their own statutes on trade secrets.

This extract highlights several states and just one of the topics covered in the range of questions from the full Trade Secret Laws Q&A. It considers whether the state has adopted the model UTSA and, if so, any significant differences between the state's version and the UTSA.
