Trade Secrets

Protecting the confidential information that gives your business a competitive edge.
Trade Secrets encompass manufacturing, industrial, and commercial secrets. The unauthorized use of such information by anyone other than the holder or the holder’s authorized agent, is considered “unfair practice” and violates the holder’s trade secret rights. Trade secrets may include such things as advertising plans, sales methods, customer profiles, distribution methods, supplier and client lists, and manufacturing processes. However, whether the information in question constitutes a trade secret is often determined on a case-by-case basis.
