Keeping Clients’ Trade Secrets Secret
Trade secrets encompass a broad range of information, including sales and customer data, marketing strategies, product research, formulas, manufacturing technologies and more. All trade secrets have two things in common: this information is not readily available to other businesses or individuals, and this information offers tangible benefits to a business.
Understandably, businesses go to great lengths to protect this information. An experienced lawyer can be an invaluable ally and advocate. Businesses throughout Houston and the surrounding areas have relied on Beik Law Firm, PLLC. Our trade secret practice involves helping clients take proactive measures to protect themselves and representing clients in litigation. We are fully invested in our clients’ success.
A Tenacious Approach To Trade Secret Litigation
We represent businesses threatened with the loss of trade secrets by a former employee or competitor. Having represented many clients in trade secret litigation, we have an intuitive understanding of just how much is at stake. Our founder and principal attorney, Paul S. Beik, has substantial jury trial experience in trade secret litigation and intellectual property litigation. This experience is essential in protecting our clients’ rights in all stages of litigation, from filing temporary restraining orders and injunctions to seeking monetary damages.
Developing Appropriate Strategies To Protect Trade Secrets
The most common way for trade secrets to be exposed is when employees leave a company and pass knowledge on to a competitor. The main way for businesses to protect themselves against these losses is through adoption of noncompete, nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements. We can draft and review these documents to ensure they provide maximum protection without running afoul of Texas law. Our attorney can also help companies develop appropriate procedures and policies to keep confidential information secure.
