A trade secret is confidential information that is not generally known and is not easily reverse engineered by others. Trade secrets often require significant investment of both time and money. If disclosed, a trade secret would give a competitor an unfair advantage.

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in trade secret litigation in Texas and throughout the country. Trade secrets are important to a company’s intellectual property portfolio and can include a wide array of information, from formulas to product designs to customer lists.

Trade Secret Protection

It is often important to take the steps necessary to protect a company’s trade secrets. Protecting confidential information from disclosure, both within the company and when negotiating with third parties, may require the company to take preventive measures. Such measures often include non-disclosure, non-solicitation, and non-compete agreements. Proactive protection of trade secrets can make litigation more efficient and less expensive.

Trade Secret Misappropriation

Trade secret misappropriation may require immediate action to prevent irreparable harm. If confidential information is improperly disclosed, litigation may be necessary to protect the company. Often injunctive relief is necessary to protect the company’s trade secrets.
