Trade Secrets and Non-Competes

We regularly help clients identify and protect their trade secrets, and, when necessary, prosecute and defend claims of trade secret misappropriation and unfair competition.

Because we have represented plaintiffs and defendants in trade secret litigation, we have an in-depth understanding of common legal and factual issues. This helps us act before the client is harmed in the marketplace. We often resolve these cases quickly, quietly and at low cost. Where this is not possible, we aggressively pursue our clients' interests until the final appeal is exhausted, if necessary.  

We also have specialized experience handling non-competition litigation, having represented former employers, current employers and former employees in these disputes. Finally, we use our experience handling trade secret and non-compete litigation to render preventative advice to our clients, guiding them on how best to protect their trade secrets through confidentiality, non-competition or non-solicitation agreements.
