We understand the importance and value of a business’s intangible assets, including its brand, reputation, customer relationships, processes, plans, and research. We also understand how such assets can be vulnerable to unfair competition.
It is very important for the business to protect its investments, its intellectual work, trade secrets and its know-how.
It is also very important for business to react in the event of unfair use of any of these by a competitor.
For this reason, we help businesses in protecting their intangible assets by preventive measures drafting and implementing employment and non-disclosure agreements, confidentiality agreements, non-disclosure, non-competition, and non-solicitation agreements.
Unfair competition cases are frequently associated with trade secrets misappropriation, patent, trademark, design or copyright litigation.

Usually, trade secret cases involve trade secret misappropriation. If your trade secrets have been misappropriated, or if you are a defendant in a trade secret matter, contact our lawyers today.
