In addition to drafting employment agreements to address trade secret protection, noncompetition and nondisclosure, we have experience representing businesses on both sides of trade secret disputes.
Even when a company takes appropriate security measures to ensure their trade secrets don’t end up in the wrong hands, it is not always enough to protect against misappropriation. In the event that a trade secret is unlawfully obtained, our trade secret attorneys can file a misappropriation claim and litigate your trade secret dispute in both state and federal courts.
We understand the nuances of both the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) and Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA, adopted by most states) and will seek the appropriate remedies under the DTSA. In situations where protection is needed outside of the United States, we can also help litigants seek redress against international defendants under the Economic Espionage Act, amended by the DTSA, and the International Trade Commission.
