At Grant’s Law Firm, our attorneys meet frequently with business executives and start-up business to help them establish the best protect for their business.
A trade secret is a formula, practice, process, design, instrument, pattern, or compilation of information which is not generally known or reasonably ascertainable, by which a business can obtain an economic advantage over competitors or customers; it is sometimes referred to a “confidential information”.
A business needs to ensure that its confidential information is protected. When an employee, or other person, has access to sensitive information, a business needs to take a proactive approach to ensure secrecy. A company can protect its confidential information through non-compete and non-disclosure contracts with its employees (within the constraints of employment law, including only restraint that is reasonable in geographic and time scope).
We advise you of the actions you need to take to maintain the confidential nature of your trade secrets. Our attorneys draft confidentiality agreements for individuals and businesses regarding any potential partnerships or joint ventures with other individuals or businesses. We also institute legal action if your trade secrets have been improperly disclosed to or used by a competitor.
Grant’s Law Firm’s attorneys in Orange County, Riverside County, and Los Angeles County will advise you how to protect your trade secrets or confidential information. Contact a trade secret lawyer at our Irvine, Glendale, Riverside, or Indian Wells office.
