10 Key Trade Secret Developments of 2015: Part 1

Four Faegre Baker Daniels attorneys—partners Randy Kahnke and Kerry Bundy and associates Tyler Young and Peter Magnuson—are co-authoring a two-part Law360 piece highlighting the year’s biggest developments in trade secret law. The first part, published on Dec. 16, evaluated five trends and their potential trade secret implications in the U.S. and abroad.

The second part will be published in January.
