Guarding Trade Secrets And Vital Company Information
Trade secrets give your company its competitive edge. Your trade secrets may take many forms, including client lists, secret formulas, proprietary methods and more. If a competitor accesses this sensitive information, however, they could nullify your advantage, breach the trust of your customers and professional connections, or create other significant issues.
Our knowledgeable intellectual property lawyers know that trade secrets and other intellectual property are critical to your business. We can partner with you to ensure that you preserve your information with the right legal tools — and to enforce your ownership of trade secrets in the event of a dispute.
We Take Aggressive Measures To Protect Trade Secrets And Data
If you discovered a former employee, a competitor or a business affiliate using confidential data, we recommend taking immediate legal action. You can contest trade secret misappropriation under the Georgia Trade Secret Act or other laws applicable to your jurisdiction.
Our experienced business law attorneys can represent you if another party challenges your ownership of a trade secret. With a notable business litigation track record, we are confident that we can maximize your company’s privacy.
Simple Agreements Might Not Always Prevent A Dispute
If a business or employment contract is at the center of the trade secret dispute, we will carefully review its terms. Confidentiality agreements, noncompete clauses, nondisclosure agreements and nonsolicitation agreements are delicate legal matters.
Restrictive covenants must be enforceable and comprehensive to be fully effective, and those two factors are dependent on the unique context of your agreement. If the opposition successfully argues that the terms of the agreement are far too limiting, or that you do not possess exclusive rights to the trade secret, the court may find that the contract is unenforceable.
Therefore, we will take the offense to uphold your contract and protect your information. Your trade secrets may be your company’s most valuable assets. Our attorneys will analyze the details of your case and build a comprehensive trial strategy.
