Trade secrets and other confidential know-how are the lifeblood of your business.
They can secure innovation and help you to maintain a strong market position. In some situations, confidentiality might be preferable to patent protection. However, developing strategies to prevent misuse and theft is essential to preserving the value of proprietary information.
We help clients like you to draft employee agreements covering confidentiality and nondisclosure. We formulate policies and practices to help prevent the theft of trade secrets by former, current, and future employees. And we prepare agreements for the license or sale of industrial secrets.
