Trade secret protection can serve as a valuable way to protect certain intellectual property rights. Trade secret protection can last indefinitely, and thus, trade secrets can offer an advantage over patent protection, which only lasts for a specifically limited period of time. However, through methods such as reverse engineering, trade secrets can also be lost. Our attorneys understand these complexities and rely on their experience and skill to tailor legal strategies that will afford the best possible intellectual property protection for each client.
In an increasingly competitive and global marketplace, the need for owners to keep their special knowledge out of the hands of competitors has never been greater. Our attorneys possess the technical expertise and legal acumen necessary to assist owners in accomplishing this goal. Through a variety of civil and commercial means, such as the employment of non-disclosure agreements and non-compete clauses, our attorneys creatively and adeptly craft successful strategies to ensure that special knowledge is fully protected.
