Intellectual property litigation partner Peter Brody (Washington, D.C.) co-authored an article published in the December/January 2017 issue of Today’s General Counsel that examines whether companies should seek a patent for an innovation or maintain the innovation as a trade secret, when both forms are viable means of protection.

The authors explain the various types of protectable information, key benefits and enforcement rights for patents and trade secrets, including a flowchart for deciding whether to patent or protect valuable IP as a trade secret.
