Welcome to the February 2011 issue of White & Case LLP's Tokyo Disputes Practice Newsletter.
In this issue, we examine some of the remedies available to employers who are the victim of trade secret theft by employees in the US, namely, by filing a criminal complaint with the Department of Justice. We also review some of the DOJ's recent prosecutions for trade secret theft. We also take a look at how "sealed offers" can be effectively used in international arbitration proceedings to contain costs. Finally, we discuss how the use of provisional attachment orders in Japan can help prevent defendants from hiding or disposing of assets to avoid satisfying future court judgments.
