All businesses have trade secrets. The difference is that some are keenly aware of the importance of their trade secrets, while the majority only become aware when competitors attempt to acquire their client lists or marketing plans, or talk to their employees or copy the way they do business. Technology is changing so swiftly that trade secret protection is, in some cases, the most attractive, effective and readily available intellectual property right. An increasing number of companies are realizing that original confidential information, knowledge and expertise are crucial to maintaining a competitive edge.
At Arochi & Lindner, we assist you by developing and implementing information protection practices that address the risks associated with a global marketplace, precipitate advances in technology and telecommunications, a mobile, highly-skilled work force and networked strategic business relationships. We prepare confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, as well as assignment agreements with employees, contractors and other parties.
