Spotlight on Animal Health Trade Secret Protection: Best Practices to Keep Your Information Safe


Click to view a recording of the Spotlight on Animal Health: Trade Secret Protection Seminar.

A Husch Blackwell Animal Health Series Program

A recent study estimates that losses associated with trade secret theft amount to between 1% and 3% of the GDP of the United States and other developed nations. This threat, coupled with the uncertainty of the patent landscape, means that it is critical to evaluate methods for protecting your confidential information.

Join the Husch Blackwell Animal Health team and our animal health expert Dr. Peter T. Anderson for a presentation on this timely topic followed by an opportunity to network with others in the industry.
