Our Trade Secret Litigation and Counseling Services
In the event of a trade secret misappropriation assertion by or against our clients, we help minimize disruption to the business, while aggressively pursuing or defending our clients’ rights in court or an alternative forum, all in an effort to resolve disputes successfully and in a cost-effective manner. Clients also turn to Womble Bond Dickinson to navigate employee mobility incidents implicating trade secret concerns. Trade secrets are most at risk when an employee walks out the door with confidential information, intentionally or not. In addition to devising strategies to prevent such trade secret leaks, we direct internal corporate investigations to get to the bottom of trade secret theft accusations and guard the company’s interests.
Central to Womble Bond Dickinson's trade secrets counseling is helping companies guard and monetize their trade secrets. We advise companies on corporate policies and best practices for protection of trade secrets, and we audit trade secret assets and protection mechanisms. We also craft and negotiate non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements with employees, business partners, and investors, and we perform due diligence and consummate deals involving exploitation of trade secret assets. We have represented clients in M&A, licensing agreements, business contracts, vendor relationships, and joint development agreements in which trade secrets are involved, ensuring that our clients' business interests are advanced while their sensitive information remains protected.
Our comprehensive, cross-practice approach to trade secrets includes not just intellectual property trial lawyers, but also veteran employment, privacy and data security, corporate transactions, and technology professionals.
