At the 2011 NASABA Convention, Ashok Ramani will discuss how companies can protect their trade secrets in this time of increasing employee mobility. The convention provides education and networking opportunities for attorneys of South Asian descent.
Ashok Ramani focuses his practice on patent and trade-secret matters. He has represented clients in federal and state courts as well as before the US International Trade Commission in Section 337 investigations. Mr. Ramani's notable results include securing two nine-figure settlements (one of which followed a successful ten-week jury trial), obtaining preliminary injunctions against former employees on trade secret misappropriation claims, and achieving mid-trial voluntary dismissal by the plaintiff (with Mr. Ramani's clients and the other defendant paying nothing).
Founded in 2004, NASABA representatives meet regularly with representatives from the White House, the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and other federal agencies to discuss issues affecting the South Asian community, including domestic surveillance, the Patriot Act, immigrant registration, hate crimes and racial profiling.
