Violations of Trade Secrets
Your confidential business information can be valuable. When it falls into the wrong hands, it can do incalculable damage to your business. If someone else has wrongfully obtained your trade secrets, you may be able to file a lawsuit against them.
Even if you do not have a patent, trade secrets are part of your company’s intellectual property. You use them to make money. Your company counts on employees to protect Trade Secrets, as you may suffer if the information ends up in the competitors’ hands or in the public realm.
Not everything is a trade secret violation. Usually, there is some sort of improper action. It could be carelessness on the part of your employees and protecting the information. Trade secret violations could also involve nefarious and dishonest means that your competitors could use to obtain your information.
If a trade secret violation has victimized your company, it is imperative that you take quick legal action. In the short term, you can obtain injunctive relief in order to stop someone from continuing to improperly use the information. You may also sue for damages to pay you back for the money that you lost from the trade secret violation. Alternatively, a court may order someone to pay you royalties for what they have already used.
The first thing to do if you suspect a violation of trade secret laws is to contact an experienced attorney. The longer you wait to act, the more damage could be done to your business.
