Partner Val Perkins Talks About Proposed Uniform Trade Secrets Act with Law360


Law360 discussed the proposed Uniform Trade Secrets Act with Government Affairs Partner Val Perkins. Mr. Perkins said that the Act would codify and modernize existing Texas common law relating to the misappropriation of trade secrets, while enhancing available remedies to aggrieved businesses.

The bill specifies what information is considered a trade secret, "providing more clarity and consistency as compared to the common law," Mr. Perkins said. The bill also provides that injunctive relief is a "proper remedy," giving courts statutory authority for issuing such orders.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
