Trade secrets and other proprietary information are gaining importance as companies become more technology focused. Our attorneys help clients protect valuable assets, including trade secrets and sensitive business information. We are particularly skilled in counseling clients in connection with protecting and maintaining their trade secrets and other proprietary information from theft by existing employees or competitors. This includes conducting trade secret audits, preparing confidentiality agreements and employee agreements and providing strategies for implementing appropriate internal protection measures.
Our lawyers also counsel clients with respect to the relative advantages of maintaining proprietary assets as a trade secret or other form of intellectual property protection. In addition, we prosecute trade secret misappropriation cases and aggressively protect our clients’ valuable assets by obtaining and defending against temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions and other court-sanctioned relief.
