- Eric Welsh, a partner in Parker Poe’s Charlotte office, recently had an article published in the American Bar Association’s Business Torts Journal discussing trends around the country in addressing the specificity required for trade secret misappropriation cases. In the article, Eric discusses some of the complexities in bringing trade secret cases today. Eric also examines how pleading standards differ from state to state and how courts focus more on pre-trial discovery to sort out and eliminate the unmerited claims being brought to court.
Eric Welsh has more than 20 years of experience litigating business disputes in federal and state courts throughout the United States. Mr. Welsh has successfully represented clients in matters involving claims of business torts, antitrust, RICO, unfair competition and intellectual property claims. He also counsels clients on antitrust compliance, intellectual property and privacy issues and e-discovery.
