Protecting Trade Secrets

Representing Northern California Businesses

Trade secrets are an essential asset for any business. When vital information is leaked to another company, the competitor gains an advantage in the marketplace. In today’s world, where information is easily shared with the click of a button, maintaining trade secrets is more important than ever.

At Simpson, Garrity, Innes & Jacuzzi, P.C., we represent employers in trade secret disputes. Our skilled attorneys have extensive experience with California and federal labor laws and work hard to protect the interests of our clients. We represent businesses located throughout California.

Trade Secret Preservation

Trade secrets take many forms, including customer lists, manufacturing processes, secret formulas and codes to software and hardware. A majority of trade secret violations are performed by current or former employees who have close access to proprietary and confidential information. Often, these individuals give private company information to a business rival or use the information to start their own companies.

At Simpson, Garrity, Innes & Jacuzzi, P.C., our lawyers assist businesses with a range of trade secret protection services, including:

  • Creating confidential agreements
  • Developing privacy policies
  • Securing restraining orders against employees who have violated trade secrets laws
  • Putting systems in place to protect physical security

Our goal is to ensure that your business’s trade secrets are not disclosed, misused or stolen, while maintaining employee privacy rights.
