Although sometimes overlooked, trade secrets are an important part of a company’s intellectual property portfolio. We have an experienced team of trade secrets law attorneys and litigators that handle trade secret matters. We are guided by the principle that a comprehensive strategy must include systems for identifying, evaluating, and protecting trade secrets, while maximizing their value. This is difficult because trade secret protection often comes from its status as a secret or confidential information.
Our trade secret law attorneys and litigators have assisted clients in protecting valuable customer and vendor lists, business processes such as customized manufacturing techniques, and engineering designs. We have also assisted clients in protecting trade secrets shared in joint ventures or other collaborative arrangements under non-disclosure agreements when the other party misuses the shared information.
