MATTER Workshop: Trade Secret Basics for Startups

There are many concerns a startup must deal with when starting on a business venture, but among the most important of those concerns are issues relating to intellectual property. In many circumstances, failure to identify and take steps to protect the business’s intellectual property can make or break a company. While trade secrets represent one important form of intellectual property that can give a startup an advantage over its competition, it is often overlooked and can be lost by accident or by misappropriation. This clinic will help startups identify and protect its trade secret information. Emily Miao will discuss practical strategies that startups can implement to protect its trade secrets as well as provide an overview of key provisions in sample confidentiality and non-compete agreements.
