Solo & Small Firm Section

The Solo & Small Firm Section provides meaningful and practical continuing legal education to its members and assists members in achieving economics in law office administration and procedure. The Section generally meets the first Wednesday of the month at noon. It also sponsors several social networking events during the year and, from time to time, full or half day CLE programs of interest to solo practitioners and small law firms.

Please join us for our next program at noon on August 3, 2016.

Title:  Understanding Your New Trade Secret Options: DTSA v. TUTSA

Speaker:  Scott McDonald, Littler Mendelson, PC

Description:      The options related to trade secret protection have changed significantly over the last several years, and the addition of federal law protection through the DTSA has changed the picture even more.   The new law creates some new obligations.  The failure to identify and take the steps necessary to preserve a client’s options, both in litigation and in company agreements and policies, will be covered in the presentation along with a checklist of practical steps to follow and issues to consider in advising clients with trade secret concerns

For more information please contact Don Uloth, chair of the Solo and Small Firm at or at 214-725-0260.
