Trade secrets can be a critical component of a company’s intellectual property portfolio. In order to maintain an advantage over competitors, it is important for a business to work with a legal team with experience in developing the groundwork to identify and protect confidential information for its clients and also creating a framework to discourage and prevent misappropriation. When misappropriation does happen, it can be necessary to aggressively pursue the enforcement of a trade secret claim and related claims to prevent further loss of value to the company. Conversely, it is often difficult and costly to defend against a trade secret misappropriation claim, so it is vital for businesses to work with a legal team that is adept at quickly identifying the relevant issues to provide a streamlined and cost-effective defense.
