Trade Secrets

Patent protection may not be available or may not be the most effective form of intellectual property protection for innovations. Our Intellectual Property attorneys provide comprehensive guidance to clients to safeguard the trade secrets and proprietary information that are critical to their businesses. This includes confidential information about know-how, technologies, product development, business and marketing plans, customer lists and financial information.

To protect our clients’ investments in their businesses and guard against unfair competition, we advise clients on the development and implementation of policies and procedures to secure their trade secrets and proprietary information. We also work with them to draft, negotiate and enforce restrictive covenant agreements, non-disclosure agreements and non-competition agreements.

Our attorneys have extensive experience resolving disputes involving such claims as: misappropriation of trade secrets; violations of non-disclosure, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements; tortious interference with contractual or business relationships; and breaches of fiduciary duty.
