We know trade secrets are crucial to maintaining a competitive advantage in a global marketplace. Our attorneys help clients identify their trade secrets at any stage of development and, if necessary, enforce their rights in court.
We assess risk and develop effective trade secret policies and programs that reduce the risk of misappropriation. We draft confidentiality, nondisclosure, and other agreements; write employee manuals; and structure educational and compliance programs. Our clients include Fortune 100 corporations, educational institutions, and small and start-up businesses.
Our attorneys protect a variety of assets, including:
- Processing methods
- Sales and marketing information, including forecasts, budgets, production costs, profit margin data, customer lists, and pipeline products
We have experience obtaining and defending against temporary restraints and injunctions in connection with all facets of trade secret use. We assist in conducting internal investigations for companies faced with allegations of misappropriation.
