Understanding and Litigating Trade Secrets: An Outline for Analyzing the Statutory and Common Law of Trade Secrets in Illinois, Jenner & Block

Jenner & Block Partners Debbie L. Berman, Daniel J. Winters and April A. Otterberg and Associates Justin A. Maleson and Abraham M. Salander wrote the 2014 edition of Understanding and Litigating Trade Secrets, which reviews case law regarding the protection of confidential and trade secret information. Since the first edition was published in 2009, the authors observe, Illinois law in this area has continued to evolve.  This edition analyzes not just the complex body of Illinois law — it also contains a 50-state analysis of the inevitable disclosure doctrine. With practical suggestions for counseling clients and defending or prosecuting trade secret misappropriation claims, the publication is an invaluable resource for practitioners nationwide.
