We recognize that trade secrets are often a company’s most valuable asset, and we stay on top of the challenges that new technologies and increased employee mobility and globalization present. We represent clients across the nation in asserting or defending claims of trade secret misappropriation and unfair competition in federal and state courts, and before public agencies. The firm has notable experience on the best practices for identifying valuable trade secrets, and for designing, implementing, and maintaining trade secret policies and protections.

Our Trade Secret group incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach drawing upon the strengths of our Complex Litigation, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, White Collar & Investigations, Government Relations, and Privacy practices. We understand the critical nature of these claims and act quickly to ensure the best outcomes for our clients. We also understand the sensitivities involved in trade secret claims involving employees, and regularly counsel employers on the best ways to prevent theft and ensuing litigation.

Our attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience litigating claims involving computer, software, and data security technologies, many of which have technical backgrounds and advanced degrees in these areas.

We work hand in hand with our patent, copyright, privacy and data protection, employment, antitrust, and trademark colleagues to provide clients with extremely specialized advice across all areas that touch new technology development.
