Trends in Trade Secret Litigation Report

By Jeffrey Mordaunt | Joshua Swedlow | Stout 

Stout’s Trends in Trade Secret Litigation Report details the latest findings from our continual monitoring of the federal trade secret litigation landscape.

The report also features the conclusions derived from our quantitative study on federal trade secret cases in which a verdict was derived or settlement information was publically available, over a 26-year period from 1990 to 2015. Our in-depth research and analysis focuses on:

  • The impact of the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016
  • How evolving patent law may influence the ways businesses protect their intellectual property
  • Increased workforce mobility and technology usage and related trade secret misappropriation
  • The historical impact of trade secret litigation trends across types of trade secrets, claims, industries, jurisdictions, damages, and more
