For many organizations, their most valuable asset is the confidential information they possess that sets them apart from their competition. This information can come in many forms, such as product formulations, manufacturing processes, proprietary software, client lists, advertising and marketing methods and many others. When trade secrets are stolen, it can jeopardize the future viability of the organization. Businesses that have had their confidential information compromised need the counsel of a seasoned trade secret disputes attorney to obtain appropriate relief.

This is accomplished by negotiating ironclad agreements with restrictive covenant and non-compete/confidentiality clauses, establishing and enforcing strict confidentiality policies and procedures, and setting up protocols that keep your critical information safe.
We understand that despite your best efforts, trade secret theft can still occur.

Trade Secret Disputes and Litigation
If litigation is necessary to resolve your dispute, you must demonstrate to the court that your business possesses a trade secret and that the adversarial party misappropriated the trade secret.
If it is successfully established that a trade secret exists and another party has misappropriated it, injunctive relief may be necessary to put an immediate stop to the use of the confidential data while the case is being litigated.
Alleged trade secret theft is one of the most contentious business disputes because it involves betrayal of information deemed critical to the continued success of the organization.
