Your business probably has information that, if put in the hands of a competitor, could materially harm your company. It is critical to protect that information. This secret information typically gets leaked through the result of employee or contractor data theft. This critical data could include customer lists and data relevant to clients that could be classified as a trade secret if the lists include information that is not public knowledge. It also includes secret formulas, software source code and secret manufacturing processes that often give your business the competitive edge.

It is important to react quickly when you are aware of trade secret theft. The sooner you respond, the sooner the other party can be enjoined from using your secrets. If an employee leaves and starts a competing business or if you see evidence that your proprietary information is being used, our trade secret attorneys can help.

Our Florida-based trade secret litigation lawyers can help you when the following happens:

  • Bringing or defending claims of misappropriation of trade secrets
  • Employee theft of trade secrets
  • Breach of confidentiality and/or nondisclosure agreements
  • Trade secret protection measures

“In my opinion, all previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold.”

~ By Charles H. Duell, the Commissioner of US patent office in 1899.
