Trade Secrets

  • Best Kept Secret for Your Secrets: Trade secrets can provide key competitive advantages and become a crucial component of a business’ intellectual property strategy. MWM’s attorneys help clients secure, monetize, and protect your trade secret, even when you plan to share it.
  • Making Unfair Competition Fair Game: When necessary, we relentlessly pursue those who violate your trust, misappropriate your trade secrets and proprietary information, improperly solicit or hire your employees, interfere with your contracts or business relations, and otherwise unfairly compete.

In every industry, information technology has become more portable than ever before, and companies have never been more vulnerable to the loss, misuse or theft of their trade secrets or proprietary information, or to unfair competition targeting their employees or customers.

Munck Wilson Mandala helps you identify and correct holes in the protection of your trade secrets and proprietary information. We recommend and implement cost-effective strategies to identify and safeguard trade secrets and proprietary information through internal policies, training practices and agreements with employees, independent contractors and other business partners.

From conducting trade secret audits and drafting trade secret policies and confidentiality agreements, to litigating misappropriation and non-compete cases, our team has the experience to help clients safeguard their most critical assets.

Our attorneys are results-oriented and follow a cost-effective, holistic approach to IP protection. As part of the process, our IP attorneys familiarize themselves with your business to identify which assets should be patented and which should be kept as trade secrets, ensuring the intrinsic value of the company is properly protected.

Clients regularly call on MWM attorneys for guidance in this complex and important area – where federal law offers limited protection, state laws vary dramatically, and the law is constantly changing both from legislative action and court decisions. Whatever the dispute, our trade secret attorneys have the skills and experience necessary to handle its resolution.
