Trade Secrets Litigation

Combining an active jury trial practice with our deep understanding of business and technology, we partner with clients to address a broad range of confidentiality and trade secret matters. We are a multidisciplinary group of IP, litigation and employment lawyers who provide strategic advice to both avoid risk and resolve third party claims, as well as to protect our clients’ own intangible assets.

We have litigated on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal trade secret misappropriation actions, as well as actions involving breach of confidentiality, employment, consulting, noncompetition and non-solicitation agreements, fraud, corporate raiding, state and federal unfair competition, tortious interference and breach of duty of loyalty. We have significant jury trial experience, and our track record speaks for itself, securing some of the largest IP jury verdicts in recent years and defending clients in complex cases that involve numerous claims and multiple jurisdictions.

We bring this litigation experience to bear when counseling clients on “best practices” for on-boarding new employees, putting procedures in place to reduce the risk of subsequent claims. Similarly, we have worked with clients in responding to out-of-court allegations of corporate raiding and trade secret misappropriation, successfully avoiding litigation while maintaining the competitive edge from hiring new employees.

As recognized thought leaders in this field, we advise companies on trade secret protection and defense, implications of new state and federal laws and best practices regarding information security and data loss prevention.
