Client Alert May 11, 2020
- In the midst of the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, U.S. accusers who obtain a judgment in their dispute can use it to interfere with the day-to-day commercial activities of PRC entities.
- To prevent and protect against a judgment, Chinese entities must understand both their own vulnerabilities and their legitimate rights before and after a judgment.
- Pre-emptively preparing a defensive strategy that considers not only judgment defense, but also other likely scenarios – from a civil IP theft dispute to U.S. criminal proceedings under the umbrella of national security – can be quite effective.
Client Alert December 15, 2019
- As the ongoing trade war with China intensifies, U.S. entities have increasingly alleged trade secret theft against Chinese individuals and companies, in cooperation with U.S. law enforcement actions.
- With this in mind, Chinese parties in global trade secret disputes will need to anticipate and respond to the risk that their disputes could quickly turn criminal.
- Off-ramping a criminal investigation, or clearing one’s name in a criminal prosecution for alleged trade secret theft, requires a keen understanding of criminal and civil U.S. trade secret laws, as well as the intersection of intellectual property and national security matters.
