Did Your Business Partner Unlawfully Disclose a Trade Secret?
Our Los Angeles Trade Secret Lawyers Will Help You Enforce Your Contract Through Litigation
Trade secrets have value due to their exclusivity from public knowledge. A trade secret is valuable because it is not generally known by other people and because reasonable efforts have been made to maintain its secrecy. The trade secret can be a formula, pattern compilation, program, device, method, technique, or process used in your business, which gives you an advantage over your competitors who do not know it. Unlike other intellectual property, trade secret information does not need to be unique or novel, only secret. Our Los Angeles trade secret lawyers understand California employment law and will help you determine the validity of your claim.
If an employee or business partner misappropriates or unlawfully discloses a company’s trade secret, then litigation arises. California law generally prohibits non-competition provisions in contracts. However, non-competitions that protect a company’s trade secrets are generally enforceable. In fact, a company can seek to stop the misappropriation of its trade secrets. Especially in the absence of a contract. If you need help protecting your company’s trade secret, then our Los Angeles trade secret lawyers are here to help. Contact us today at (310) 919-0091 for a free initial consultation.
