Polsinelli’s Trade Secrets Litigation attorneys partner with clients to aggressively protect their trade secrets. Our attorneys use their legal experience, grounded in solid business judgment, to develop processes and procedures that prevent clients’ valuable trade secrets and proprietary information from being misappropriated by or disclosed to competitors.
When our clients are victimized by a breach of security, we act swiftly to identify the thief and limit disclosure and misuse of this highly sensitive information by pursuing all available remedies, including immediate injunctive relief where appropriate. When our clients are accused of misappropriation, we analyze the claim and provide a vigorous and thorough defense.
Our group has decades of experience in enforcing and defending our clients in trade secret litigation in courts throughout the United States. Because of this vast experience, we understand that trade secrets take many forms ranging from a secret formula, unique technology and business method to a confidential development plan, covert marketing program or other undisclosed – yet valuable – information. We recognize that these trade secrets are our clients’ vital intellectual property and our attorneys are committed to understanding their value to a business and protecting those assets.
