Presenter Bios (to be included with description of program)
 
Eric Ostroff, Meland Budwick, P.A.’s Managing Partner, focuses his practice on business litigation and intellectual-property litigation. Chambers USA describes him as an “outstanding attorney” who “wins praise for his extensive experience in commercial disputes, with a notable expertise in trade secrets cases.” Eric is one of the youngest attorneys included in Chambers USA’s rankings of Florida commercial litigators.
 
Businesses and individuals trust Eric to protect their interests in courts and arbitrations throughout Florida and across the country, often in bet-the-company cases. He regularly litigates a broad range of business disputes, including cases involving breaches of contract, business torts, officer/director fiduciary duties, business defamation, civil conspiracy, unfair competition, false advertising, real estate, and deceptive and unfair trade practices. He also represents plaintiffs and defendants in trademark and copyright infringement actions. Eric is an experienced trial lawyer who has tried many cases to verdict, before judges, juries, and arbitration panels.
 
Eric helps businesses protect their trade secrets and proprietary information, both before and during litigation. He works with businesses to identify their trade secrets and ensure that they are taking all steps necessary to protect this critical information. And he has extensive experience prosecuting and defending trade-secret and noncompete actions, including obtaining emergency injunctive relief. For example, he obtained a jury verdict against a client’s former sales director, who secretly created a competing company using the client’s proprietary information.
 
Eric has frequently been quoted in various media outlets regarding business litigation and trade-secrets issues, including the New York Times, Bloomberg, Reuters, and the Miami Herald. He is also the author of the Protecting Trade Secrets blog, which can be found at www.protectingtradesecrets.com. And he is frequently invited to speak throughout the country about trade secrets and intellectual property, as well as about using advanced technology in litigation.
 
Before joining Meland Budwick, P.A.,  Eric worked for five years at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, where he was part of the Employment Litigation and Complex Commercial Litigation practice groups.
