LITIGATION

Confidentiality & trade secrets

 

Trade secrets, commercially sensitive customer data, and know-how are often the lifeblood of businesses. These assets must be protected but also made available when negotiating joint ventures, sales, purchases, mergers, agency contracts, and procurement contracts.

We are experienced in drafting appropriate confidentiality agreements to allow our clients to disclose and receive confidential information safely, be these unilateral bilateral, terms that need embedding in contracts or stand-alone confidentiality agreements or non-disclosure agreements.

What happens if a trusted employee walks out to set up in competition, helping himself to those very secrets in the process? Our litigation team are experienced in dealing with the challenges of such a situation and regularly act for both employers and employees. We know that speed is of the essence, both to protect the business itself and also to meet the deadlines expected by the Court.

“Very professional, knowledgeable and accessible lawyers.”
