Extract from Philip Favro's article "Electronic Discovery and Seizure Orders Under the Defend Trade Secrets Act"
Congress passed the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) with much fanfare, touting its potential to curtail both domestic and cross-border theft of American ingenuity and technology. While not substantially different from its state law counterparts, the DTSA offers a unique and powerful remedy previously unavailable to aggrieved parties in their efforts to curb trade secret misappropriation: ex parte seizure of property containing trade secrets.
The DTSA seizure order provision also involves key electronic discovery issues of which counsel and clients should be aware. This article provides a brief overview of DTSA seizure orders and discusses e-discovery considerations in connection with those orders.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
