ONLY ONE WEEK AWAY: EU CLE - Protecting Business Information

The International Practice Section of the Washington State Bar Association cordially invites you to attend the presentation:

Protecting Business Information: A Comparative Analysis of the U.K. & U.S. Laws

Jon Heuvel (Penningtons' Solicitors LLP employment team) and David Rice (Miller Nash’s government affairs practice group)

As globalization increases, more and more U.S companies are engaging in cross border operations and transactions. As a result it has become increasingly important for these entities not only to understand and familiarize themselves with the laws of the United States but also the laws of the territories they are venturing into, including often the United Kingdom. As U.S. companies enter the United Kingdom, an area of growing concern for these companies is how they can protect and safeguard their valuable and confidential information from disaffected employees, competitors and others. This CLE is designed to provide answers to this very query by not only identifying the data that needs to be protected, but will also discuss how such invaluable and important data and information can be lost. It is essential for U.S. lawyers representing companies conducting business in the United Kingdom to understand the resulting legal implications and consequences.

This CLE will further provide an overview of laws & regulations in the United Kingdom & United States pertaining to protecting and safeguarding valuable and confidential company information, a comparative analysis of the regulations and laws specific to this area in both countries, and bests practices for U.S. Companies that handle and deal with data in the United Kingdom. This CLE is essential to anyone engaged in cross-border practice or has clients engaged in business in the United Kingdom, so reserve your seat today!
