Trade Secret

There is a class of intellectual property not protected by patents, trademarks, or copyrights that companies must make ongoing and consistent efforts to protect: trade secrets.

Valuable information - both technological and commercial - can be protected and exploited as trade secrets if the appropriate safeguards are followed.

The Stradling intellectual property attorneys work closely with clients to identify and protect their trade secret assets through:

  • Secrecy programs
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Seminars
  • Litigation, if necessary

Our intellectual property and technology attorneys have extensive experience in helping companies protect their trade secrets from loss through misappropriation by employees, piracy or third-party theft, or other causes.

Our litigators also apply our experience and knowledge to defending companies accused of misappropriation of trade secrets.
