Postponed to a date to be determined.

Location:
The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa

Due to continued concerns about COVID-19 and the increasing number of Sedona conference participants who are subject to travel restrictions that will prevent their attendance, we have postponed the The 2020 Sedona Conference on Developing Guidelines for Trade Secret Issues to a future date to be determined. The conference will be rescheduled for a date following the abatement of the current health concerns. Thank you for understanding the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this important event.

This Conference will present for public dialogue for the first time the first set of consensus, non-partisan publications from our Sedona Working Group 12 on Trade Secrets, to be published for public comment in the weeks and months leading up to the Conference, consisting of:

  • WG12 Commentary on the Proper Identification of Asserted Trade Secrets in Misappropriation Lawsuits
  • WG12 Commentary on The Employee Life Cycle Relating to Trade Secrets
  • WG12 Commentary on Equitable Remedies in Trade Secret Litigation
  • WG12 Commentary on Monetary Remedies in Trade Secret Litigation
  • WG12 Commentary on Protecting Trade Secrets in Litigation About Them
  • WG12 Commentary on Governance and Management of Information Security and Trade Secrets
  • WG12 Commentary on Trade Secret Issues Across International Borders: Extraterritorial Reach
  • WG10/12 Joint Commentary on Cross-Border Discovery in Patent Litigation and Trade Secret Litigation

The Conference will further convene a panel discussing additional current/future trends in trade secret law and litigation, some of which may well develop into our next set of Sedona WG12 commentary drafting team efforts, for which we plan on putting out a call for volunteers leading up to or shortly after the Conference. And we will close the Conference with a Judicial Roundtable, comprising some of our Judicial Advisors who have graciously and generously participated in our WG12 efforts to date.
