From Partners to Rivals: Collaboration Contamination Perils in Zunum v Boeing

IAM turned to Jeffrey Farrow for his thoughts on the recently decided Zunum Aero v. Boeing trade secret case venued in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. Jeff shined a light on the importance of the jury’s $72 million verdict in favor of Zunum, which confirms strong legal protections for trade secret owners and highlights the need for careful vetting of business partners. Among other things, Jeff noted that Zunum’s innovative electric aircraft technology directly threatened Boeing’s long-standing business model, underscoring the critical need for rigorous protection and monitoring of proprietary information.
