St. Louis lawyers recognized for legal article

Each year, the Journal of The Missouri Bar’s editorial board presents the W. Oliver Rasch Award to recognize the authors of outstanding substantive works appearing in its pages. This year, Jeffrey Schultz and William M. Corrigan Jr., a past president of The Missouri Bar, took home the prize at The Missouri Bar Foundation and Public Service Awards Luncheon, Sept. 21, 2016, during The Missouri Bar’s Annual Meeting at the Lodge of Four Seasons in Lake Ozark.

Schultz and Corrigan, both partners at the St. Louis office of Armstrong Teasdale, were awarded for “Trade Secret Litigation – An Updated Overview,” which was published in the Journal’s January/February 2015 issue.

As an update to their 2007 article on the same topic, the piece tackled issues surrounding trade secrets and the Missouri Uniform Trade Secrets Act – including what information has been determined to warrant trade secret status and some practical considerations to protect trade secrets.

“The article’s intended to be a really a practical guide to litigating trade secret cases,” Schultz said during an interview about winning the award. “It really does provide a step-by-step procedure for litigating a trade secrets case. It’s an opportunity for us to give back and help out others who may not have the same experiences we do when they’re faced with similar situations.”
