Trade Secrets

Every company in every industry realizes that their information, methods, formulae, programs and other proprietary materials give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace. What makes these companies competitive cannot always be protected by patent or copyright law. We have helped many companies identify and protect these valuable trade secret assets. We also help these companies create employment policies and draft appropriate employment contracts to better protect confidential information. We have helped our clients protect their trade secrets in a wide range of industries, including:

 

  • Electronics
  • Computer software
  • Manufacturing
  • Consumer products

 

We also have significant experience in litigation involving trade secret matters, including pursuing TRO’s, injunctive relief and money damages.

Reinsurance

Our reinsurance attorneys represent primarily reinsurers and retrocessionaires across all lines of reinsurance. We have extensive experience in litigation and arbitration as well as innovative approaches toward mediated dispute resolution.

In addition to contentious matters, we also have extensive experience in treaty and certificate drafting, pooling and fronting arrangements, and commutations and insolvencies, including ancillary proceedings. Complementing our experience is a significant grounding in finite risk or financial reinsurance. Our representative clients include some of the world’s top reinsurers and retrocessionaires.

Aside from evaluating claims and proofs of loss that have been submitted to our clients and keeping our clients abreast of pertinent legal developments, our most recent assignments have included the following:

  • Redrafting of treaty wordings in conjunction with both underwriters and claims staff.
  • Arbitration of disputes concerning non-conforming cessions, cross-treaty set-offs, extra-contractual obligations and contractual rescission.
  • Litigation of claims against the reinsurer based on alleged impropriety of the cedant’s conduct and prosecution of cases against the intermediary and the cedant based on the "Pritchard & Baird" clause.
