Trade Secret Law


Does your business have secret information that derives independent economic value from the fact that it is secret? Is that information protected as a secret by reasonable efforts? 

If the answer to both of these questions is “yes,” then you may have a protectable trade secret.


In addition to pursuing and defending businesses in trade secret misappropriation litigation, Smith Haughey’s trade secret attorneys also provide counsel to:

    Our clients to assess and identify the existence of enforceable trade secrets within their business
    Guide their business’s internal policies and practices to ensure the protection of trade secrets
    Guard existing trade secrets through various agreements, including non-disclosure agreements, non-competition and confidentiality provisions in independent contractor and employment agreements, and trade secret licenses
