Trade secrets are critically valuable pieces of confidential information, and every company in the world has them whether they realize it or not.  Trade secrets are gaining significant attention especially since the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA), the first federal trade secret law in the United States, was enacted in 2016.  Trade secret litigation is on the rise as well, and involves nearly every sector, from electronics to biotech to ice cream machines and even coffee-flavored lip gloss. In addition, the size of judgements is also increasing. Last year’s Appian Corp. v. Pegasystems Inc. case resulted in a $2B judgement against Pegasystems.

“The value of trade secrets has gone up over the past few years. However, companies’ ability to protect them have not stayed up-to-date,” said Biplab Adhya, Managing Partner of Wipro Ventures. “Tapping into Tangibly’s tools, Wipro’s Enterprise Legal Management Solutions practice will be able to help our clients protect and realize value from their most critical intellectual property and assets. We are excited about the opportunities ahead and look forward to exploring how we can create unique client solutions using Tangibly.”
