Protecting trade secrets is core to a company’s survival and deserving of focused attention from companies leaders. We help companies audit their trade secret protection systems and develop and implement best practices. We also:
- Prepare nondisclosure, nonsolicitation and noncompetition agreements with employees, consultants and independent contractors
- Advise on ways to minimize the risk of liability when hiring employers from competitors
- Help companies protect their trade secrets when terminating employees
We handle a high volume of trade secret cases in state and federal courts and in National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) arbitrations. We pursue and defend against a wide range of infringement claims, including computer hacking, employee raiding, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty.
Depending on the case, our team can include commercial, employment and IP litigators, each with trade secret litigation experience. We staff and work cases as leanly as possible to help us work efficiently with clients and maintain reasonable case budgets.
