Protection of Trade Secrets/Confidential Information
When an employee walks out the door with confidential or proprietary information, that employee may be gaining both an unfair and an illegal advantage over his or her former employer.
Our firm advises businesses about how to protect confidential, proprietary and trade-secret information. We also represent employers in matters where their employees violate their fiduciary duty or duty of loyalty to their employer. Typically, these matters involve former employees taking confidential business data and using it at their next employer. These claims also involve defecting employees.
At the employer level, we have represented companies in numerous types of actions, in many cases achieving success without litigation.
