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 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
