Trade secret protection applies broadly to a wide range of business, financial and technical information, even information that is not subject to protection under other forms of intellectual property. As a result, trade secrets can be one of the most important and complex parts of a business’s IP portfolio.
CSG’s attorneys understand the value of their clients’ trade secrets and assist with protecting, enforcing and defending them.
Our Intellectual Property Group counsels clients in identifying valuable trade secrets and assessing whether important proprietary information can – and should – be protected under patent, trademark, copyright or trade secret law. We also advise on best practices for maintaining the confidentiality of proprietary information. CSG regularly prepares and negotiates various agreements to protect clients’ confidential information and assists in enforcing their trade secret rights in state and federal court.
Our intellectual property attorneys work closely with colleagues from complementary practice areas – such as Privacy & Data Security, Employment and Litigation – to implement solutions that address the specific issues clients face when dealing with this challenging area of law.
