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.
