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:

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