Protecting your business’s trade secrets

As a small business owner, you likely have closely guarded information about your company and its operations that you do not want your competitors or others accessing. Know as your business’s “trade secrets,” this information can take on many forms.

Why is it better to get business agreements in writing?

You might be comfortable with using handshakes and promises to confirm deals and agreements, especially when it comes to friends and family. However, to successfully own and manage a business, it's important to put things down on paper. Contracts enable you to protect yourself and your business should disagreements, conflicts or contractual violations arise.

Can a noncompete agreement protect your trade secrets?

When you have spent a great deal of time building your business’s success and reputation, the last thing you want is for someone with inside information to use it against you. This might occur when a former employee uses your company’s secrets, such as an exclusive formula, financial information or your clients’ contact info, to gain an unfair competitive advantage over you. You might find a solution by creating a noncompete agreement for your employees to sign, but you and other Georgia employers need to understand the elements of a fair noncompete contract.

3 things you need to know before going international
