Congratulations to James Cobb, who has been re-appointed co-chair of the Trade Secrets Subcommittee of the American Bar Association’s Business Torts & Unfair Competition Committee. The Business Torts & Unfair Competition Committee is one of the ABA’s most active committees. Made up of experienced trial and appellate lawyers from all over the country, the Committee’s goal is to keep business litigators up to date on developments in the realm of business torts, such as fiduciary duties, fraud, unfair trade practices, tortious interference, and misappropriation of trade secrets. This is James’s second year as co-chair of the Trade Secrets Subcommittee. Before chairing the Trade Secrets Subcommittee, James chaired the Business Torts Committee’s Fraud Subcommittee
