In the third and final installment of this trade secret litigation series (be sure to check out part one and part two), we visit hypothetical U.S. company SFilm as it pursues its hard-fought relief against a Chinese competitor that had stolen its most valuable trade secrets. After winning a federal jury trial, pursuing multiple nonlitigation efforts and cooperating in the U.S. government’s investigation of the defendant’s actions, SFilm may finally obtain financial compensation and return of its technology. But the fight is far from over. SFilm faces yet further obstacles from the defendant, running the gamut from corporate reorganizations designed to shield assets to protracted enforcement litigation designed to run up costs.
