On April 11 and April 27, 2016, the Senate and House, respectively, passed the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA). The DTSA, for the first time, provides a federal cause of action for the misappropriation of trade secrets. This significant development has large implications for companies and employers nationwide. As such, Proskauer has prepared a detailed Client Alert, discussing in detail the impactions of the DTSA. The Client Alert can be found here.
