Lawyers Ready to Reap Work From Federal Trade Secrets Act

April 8, 2016, Law.com

Richard Hertling and Kurt Calia are quoted in this article discussing the future of, and reactions to, the Defend Trade Secrets Act. Hertling says, “I don’t think [House Judiciary Committee Chairman Goodlatte] would have indicated an intention to move forward with this legislation if patent reform were going to stand in the way."

Calia sees some risk of abuse of the Act, but also has faith in the safeguards. “If you go in with flimsy facts or [request an order that's] excessive in scope … there’s exposure there.”
