Associate Paul Fraulo, under the guidance of mentor and WHIPgroup Partner Michael Kosma, participated last evening in the Judge Janet Bond Arterton American Inn of Court’s advocacy program. The case presented involved a Motion for Preliminary Injunction arising out of a claim for trade secret misappropriation.

WHIPgroup appreciates everyone who helped to make the event both educational and enjoyable, and most particularly District Court Judge Bolden for volunteering his time and providing valuable feedback to the participants.
