We provide comprehensive advice regarding the development, exploitation and maintenance of trade secrets. We assist clients in developing trade secret protection programs through customized contracts and specialized procedures and controls to enhance the value of trade secrets.

We also counsel clients regarding the use of trade secrets, such as by negotiating and drafting confidentiality agreements and licensing arrangements, as well as by advising on means of restricting use of trade secrets by ex-employees or others who have had access to those materials. For clients involved in trade secret disputes, we provide counseling and litigation services.
