Trade Secrets and Restrictive Covenant Litigation

Trade secrets and other proprietary information are valuable intellectual property assets that help companies establish and maintain a competitive edge. With the rise of digital technology, electronic communications, and aggressive competition, companies face increased risks of losing valuable trade secrets and proprietary information to former employees, vendors, contractors, and other entities with access to private and sensitive information. Our attorneys have significant experience initiating and defending claims over trade secrets, unfair competition, covenants not to compete, duty of loyalty, and other issues related to transitioning key employees. We act quickly and effectively to limit potential risks and protect our clients’ interests, whether by seeking temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, and/or expedited discovery orders. McKool Smith attorneys also routinely develop effective confidentiality agreements, non-solicitation agreements, privacy policies, and systems to prevent unwanted disclosure of confidential information.
