A trade secret involves information such as a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique or process that derives value by being neither generally known and nor easily ascertainable.
DeLio, Peterson & Curcio regularly assists clients in the effective creation and implementation of trade secret programs and in defending that valuable information. Courts will reject a claim involving the usurpation of trade secret information if procedures and protocols for protecting that information do not adhere to the requirements under law, making effective counsel in establishing trade secret programs essential.
Our lawyers are also experienced in helping to protect a company’s propriety information through the crafting of employment and consulting agreements, non-disclosure agreements and confidentiality agreements.
Our attorneys update these agreements regularly to reflect changing circumstances in the company or in the law.
