Protecting your most valuable assets
A company’s proprietary information, trade secrets and business relationships are among its most valuable assets and protecting them is key to maintaining a competitive advantage. Conversely, companies also seek legitimate advantage by hiring from the competition. Our attorneys understand this complex intersection of employment law, intellectual property, executive compensation and trade secrets, and advise employers on how best to walk that line and pursue complex litigation when problems arise.
We work with companies to implement strategies that comprehensively protect a business’ proprietary information and goodwill, from drafting and negotiating restrictive covenant agreements and reviewing for enforceability in connection with employee departures. Our attorneys also advise departing employees and their prospective employers on appropriate approaches to deal with existing restrictive covenant agreements.
Strategic Counseling and Policymaking: We draft proactive and enforceable non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, as well as developing policies to protect valuable trade secrets and confidential information.
Litigation: We represent both companies seeking to protect their trade secrets and enforce their non-competition agreements, and individuals accused of breach and misappropriation.
