Trade secrets law can include assets such as pricing information and client lists as well as processes and procedures that are unique to your business operations.
Trade Secret Law is generally defined as information which is not known to the public and is of economic value or benefit to its owner. Often the most valuable assets for any type or age business are the company’s patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. Under Title 18 of the U.S. Code, a trade secret is defined as all types of financial, economic, business, engineering, technical or scientific information, including Patterns, Plans, Compilations, Methods & Techniques, Processes & Procedures, etc.
To qualify as a trade secret, the owner of that secret must have taken reasonable measures to protect its secrecy and it must have some proven economic value. At Daniel Law Offices, our attorneys can assist you in preventing disputes over design secrets, business plans, proprietary software, client lists, manufacturing procedures and more.
