In today’s business environment, 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.
Clients regularly call on us for guidance in this complex area – where federal law offers limited protection, state laws vary, and the law is constantly changing both from legislative action and court decisions. Recognizing the damage caused when claims of unfair competition arise, we are aggressive in defending you against such allegations, including trade secret misappropriation, breaches of restrictive covenants, breaches of fiduciary duty, employee raiding, tortious interference with business relations and contracts, unfair competition, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and similar claims.
Because we bring years of technology experience to each matter, we are particularly well-suited to understand – and explain to the judge or jury – the complex technical issues involved in trade secrets litigation.
Our team also has the knowledge, skill and resources to quickly and aggressively pursue violators or to defend our clients against unfair competition claims, including seeking or defending against temporary restraining orders and other injunctive relief, and prosecuting claims in state or federal court and in alternative dispute resolution forums.
