Creating Internal Safeguards To Keep Trade Secrets Safe
Trade secrets can be misappropriated internally or externally in many ways. One common example is when employees quit working for one company and start working for another — bringing the first company’s trade secrets with them.
Because we also practice employment law, we know how to create enforceable, effective contracts to shield employers’ trade secrets. We draft thorough noncompete and nondisclosure agreements to prevent and counteract theft among your competitors. With these contracts, we can efficiently resolve cases out of court or through litigation.
Resolving Trade Secret Disputes Without Giving Those Secrets Away
When theft of trade secrets occurs, the plaintiff may seek an injunction, as well as monetary compensation for financial loss. Just as crucial, however, is to make sure your trade secrets don’t become part of a public court record.
Our lawyers represent both plaintiffs and defendants in trade secret misappropriation cases, as well as other cases involving the protection of confidential and proprietary information. We can provide you with realistic, effective actions that will protect your trade secrets without exposing them in the effort.
