Trade Secrets, Proprietary Information & Noncompetition/​Nondisclosure Agreements

Companies need creative solutions to guard against misuse and theft of trade secrets and proprietary information. We work closely with our clients to modify, design, and implement effective trade secret policies and practices, “invention” agreements, and postemployment noncompetition, nondisclosure, and nonsolicitation agreements. And when companies find themselves facing trade secret litigation in federal or state courts, our deep bench of commercial, employment, and intellectual property litigators provide effective, forceful representation.

Proactive trade secret and proprietary information policies and programs are often the least expensive and the most effective way to protect intellectual property. Through counseling and transactional advice, we help clients protect their trade secret processes, methodologies, information, formulae, client lists, ideas, and other proprietary information.
