Trade Secret Protection
Trade secrets are largely complementary to patent rights and are often an indispensable component of our team’s intellectual property strategy. For many clients, trade secrets are even more valuable than patent rights.
It is critical that sound judgements be made with respect to development of discrete but interrelated strategies for protection of trade secrets and patents. We develop and deploy trade secret policies and training and, when necessary, bring district court actions for misappropriation of trade secrets.
Just as importantly, when prosecuting patents we carefully parse the aspects of each innovation that will be maintained as trade secrets. This requires a delicate balancing of the sometimes conflicting requirements of patent law and trade secret law.
