- Identifying your Trade Secrets
- Negotiating and drafting Non-Compete, Non-Solicitation and Non-Disclosure Agreements
- Protection Advice and Procedures
- Trade Secret Enforcement (including litigation)
Trade secret law can be the most difficult type of intellectual property to identify and protect due to its abstract nature. The design, technique, process, strategy, or other confidential means by which a company sets itself apart from others sharing its market can mean the life or death of a business. After all, a trade secret is only protected so long as it remains a secret.
Our attorneys will work with you to identify your business information that may qualify for trade secret protection and provide you with the appropriate legal tools to protect your trade secrets.
Our attorneys have extensive experience drafting and reviewing non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreements to prevent exiting employees and executives from misappropriating trade secrets. We can also assist you in determining what trade secrets should, and should not, be disclosed to others over the course of negotiations with other businesses, investor relations, and intercompany communications.
If you believe someone has misappropriated or disclosed your trade secrets, our attorneys can assist you in enforcing your trade secret rights. Our attorneys may be able to assist you in successfully enjoining them from following through on a threat to disclose trade secrets, or negotiate protective orders to maintain the confidentiality of this information. If the exposure of one of your trade secrets has caused harm to your business, our attorneys may be able to recover damages for the loss sustained by your company.
Still have questions? Please contact one of our attorneys today to discuss the proactive protection of your valuable trade secrets, or to discuss necessary enforcement measures to prevent the loss of your coveted trade secrets.
