Trade Secrets and Non-Compete Litigation
Technological advances have in some ways simplified how work is done, but in many ways have complicated how a company protects its investment. To make your business run smoothly, you’ve put systems in place to allow employees to log in to your networks remotely, have portable devices to enable them to do work anytime and from anywhere, and generally made confidential or proprietary data available to carry on the organization’s mission. What happens when an employee leaves and threatens to take or secretly takes customer information or other confidential information that gives your business its competitive advantage?
Our experience in litigation includes successful prosecution and defense of non-competition or non-solicitation cases, either representing the former employer, the former employee(s) or the new employer. We have appeared before judges and magistrates throughout the state on these types of cases.
