Our firm understands the importance of protecting trade secrets in the competitive marketplace. To effectuate the protection of your trade secrets, our tailored representation includes both preventative and litigation components to preserve value they play in the growth and survival of your business.
Effective trade secret protection requires a variety of methodologies properly implemented in a business organization. These methodologies include, but are not limited to, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, non-compete (non-competition) agreements, internal policies and procedures, and compliance audits.
Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements Our firm works with our clients to develop targeted non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements to contractually obligate their employees and independent contractors to protect the confidentiality of trade secret and proprietary information. Such agreements need to be tailored specifically to the needs of each individual client. In particular, careful attention must be paid to the definitions included within the agreements to ensure effective enforcement - if necessary - by a court of law.
Internal Policies and Procedures In ensuring the enforceability and effectiveness of non-disclosure agreements, it is essential to develop and implement internal policies and procedures designed to protect confidential and proprietary information. Our firm collaborates with our clients to develop and/or implement individualized policies and procedures.
Compliance Audits To ensure our clients' continued compliance with internal policies and procedures, our firm provides regularly scheduled audit services.
Developing NDAs and policies that contain core preventative components can help maintain trade secret protection.
Litigation can provide remedies of immediate relief to preclude disclosure and use of trade secrets.
All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.
