In the information age, a business’s greatest competitive advantage is often its ability to keep and protect its trade secrets. Our attorneys can help you protect and enforce that competitive advantage.
Revision Legal’s trade secret attorneys have both prosecuted and defended against trade secret claims. Trade secrets are typically defined under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, which is a statute adopted by forty-seven states in the United States and its territories. Under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, a trade secret is considered information that derives independent economic value from the fact that it is a secret and is protected as a secret by reasonable efforts.
Typically, trade secret cases involve trade secret misappropriation. Trade secret misappropriation is defined as the acquisition of a trade secret by improper means or the disclosure or use of a trade secret by a person who used improper means to obtain knowledge of the trade secret. Since trade secrets are very valuable, trade secret misappropriation can be a very serious issue and can often result in litigation.
Though trade secrets are important, companies can often overreach in trade secret matters. In defending against a trade secret claim, an expert trade secret lawyer will identify all applicable defenses, which may include:
That the alleged trade secret is not actually a trade secret
That the trade secret was not misappropriated
That the alleged trade secret was not acquired improperly.
