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 trade secret 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.
