Trade secrets

Trade secrets are an important part of a business' IP assets.  They come in many forms, from technical know-how and manufacturing processes to customer lists and pricing information. All trade secrets need protecting. 

However, protection is easily lost and loss of protection can have severe financial impact on your business. Any business can unwittingly use another party's confidential information and become liable for it. It is easy to see how the use and ownership of trade secrets can lead to disputes. 

The deep understanding across our team draws on experts across our IP, employment, litigation and cyber security teams to help you protect your trade secrets.

Our international team develops in-house training, carries out assessments, implements robust processes to prevent the misuse or theft of information and drafts confidentiality agreements and agreements for the sale or license of trade secrets. When disputes arise our team has extensive experience in handling trade secrets litigation and alternative dispute resolution procedures robustly and quickly.
