Law Firm Advising On Trade Secret Protection
Trade secrets can offer infinite intellectual property (IP) protection. Human error tends to shorten that timeline for many companies. By definition, a trade secret is information that derives economic value from being not generally known or readily ascertainable by proper means and is the subject of “reasonable” efforts under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy. Reasonable efforts can include robust employment agreements and policies, nondisclosure agreements with investors and consultants, and even confidentiality agreements with visitors.

When a trade secret gets out, we have the experience to successfully represent our clients through all stages of trade secrets litigation.
