Sometimes rather than actual patent protection, trade secret protection can prove a more effective means for a company to benefit from its technological know-how. This form of intellectual property protection requires special precautions to prevent the loss of rights resulting from unauthorized or even inadvertent disclosure.
Seligsohn Gabrieli & Co. has in-depth expertise regarding trade secrets and procedures for establishing and safeguarding trade secret know-how. We have years of experience drafting confidentiality agreements with employees, suppliers, customers, and strategic partners. The present environment of employee mobility and increasingly complex business relationships requires policing potential uses of trade secrets by competitors. We also help with the exploitation of trade secrets by drafting trade secret and know-how license agreements. We advise our clients how to keep their trade secrets, enforce their rights in such secrets and avoid encroaching on the trade secret rights of others.
