Counseling and litigation in State and Federal Court.
Trade secret information can be technical, such as specifications, formulas, materials, or manufacturing processes, or non-technical, such as business plans, marketing strategies, or customer information. Today, valuable information is easily portable and employees are extremely mobile, leading to an increase in trade secrets misappropriation claims. We assist clients by helping them to understand the value of their confidential and proprietary information and how to protect that information, before it is inadvertently made public, misused by a former employee or stolen by a competitor. Our lawyers have extensive experience litigating trade secrets claims on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants and have handled cases for many technology companies, including Applied Materials, Juniper Networks, Facebook, eBay, Affymetrix and others.
