In today’s increasingly competitive business climate, the need to protect proprietary technological and business information is at an all time high. With ever shortening business cycles, it may be prudent to avail oneself of trade secret protection as opposed to the patent application process, under which it may take years to obtain protection. MotoSalas Law has worked with its clients to establish appropriate procedures to secure their sensitive information. Its success in this area has enabled its clients to minimize the inappropriate disclosure of trade secrets.
MotoSalas Law is experienced in addressing technical issues, for example, in the computer hardware, software, electronics, Internet and information technologies, materials, semiconductor, and telecommunications industries. In addition, its trade secret practice can also rely upon the resources found in its trademark, copyright, and trade dress practices. Its experience in addressing the concerns of its clients in their advertising and marketing efforts has allowed MotoSalas Law to develop a wealth of experience in, for example, protecting customer lists and unreleased product designs.
In the event a trade secret has been misappropriated, its trade secret practice is intimately familiar with the necessary procedures to minimize the disclosure and obtain compensation for the theft. Those steps include enforcement of non-disclosure agreements, copyright, unfair competition, theft of trade secret, as well as other federal (Defend Trade Secrets Act), state, and common law remedies.
With experience in the practical and legal issues that arise during the course of such a representation, MotoSalas Law is able to ensure that all intellectual property issues and strategies are considered when providing its clients with advice. This experience has allowed MotoSalas Law to successfully prosecute and defend against trade secret claims.
