What You Need to Know About Protecting Trade Secrets Under State and Federal Law

A few years ago Texas joined most other states and enacted its version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA, or Texas’ TUTSA). Recently, the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) became law. While there are quite a few similarities between these laws, there are also some substantial differences that you need to know to protect your businesses’ trade secrets.
