Preserving trade secrets in international arbitration
BCLP Partner Claire Morel de Westgaver authored an article published Oct. 15 by The Impact Lawyers on preserving trade secrets in international arbitration. With the growing importance of data and intangible assets, the adequate protection of a company’s trade secrets is now atop the list of priorities for many legal departments and corporate counsel alike. A trade secret is a piece of confidential information that holds commercial value and gives its owner a commercial edge. It can be a process, a formula, an algorithm or a customer list. Unlike other intellectual property rights such as a patent or copyright, a trade secret does not expire as long as it remains secret.
