Maintaining Your Competitive Edge
Protecting Your Trade SecretsInventory your valuable information. We will work with you to identify all of your business information that qualifies for trade secret protection and then provide you with the appropriate legal tools to protect your trade secrets.
Agreements to Protect Your Trade SecretsForge a shield with expertly crafted contracts. Your trade secrets can be protected by a variety of agreements, drafted with our years of experience. Through employment agreements and polices, consultant agreements, independent contractors agreements, non-disclosure agreements ("NDA") and manufacturing agreements, we protect and enforce our clients' rights.
Copyright in SoftwareAvoid disclosing your source code. Software developers often fear having to disclose their trade secret source code in copyright applications. We can file copyright applications for our clients without disclosing valuable trade secret source code but maximizing protection.
Trade Secret LitigationImmediately halt unauthorized use. If a former employee has misappropriated your trade secret and is using it in a competing business, we can prevent this unauthorized use by filing a lawsuit and immediately seeking a preliminary injunction. This alone may accomplish your objective, unless we decide to seek damages. In any lawsuit, your business interest will always be at the forefront, determining the litigation posture that will best achieve your business goals.
Defend against litigation. We can also defend our clients against allegations of trade secret misappropriation and our extensive experience allows us to find shortcomings in the plaintiff's trade secret protection policies. This can be an effective approach for dismissing a lawsuit or negotiating a favorable settlement so your business may proceed.
