Non-Compete and Trade Secrets
Relationships and know-how are often among the most valuable assets of an enterprise. We provide our clients customized non-compete, non-disclosure, trade-secret, and assignment of intellectual property agreements designed to protect those assets. We also counsel employers, contractors, and acquiring and selling companies about their rights and obligations under such agreements and the protections and restrictions provided by state and federal laws such as the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act and the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act, both of which prohibit the misappropriation of trade secrets even in the absence of a written agreement.
When theft or other misuse of confidential information is alleged to have occurred, we bring a wealth of experience into state and federal trial and appellate courts representing our clients in obtaining and defending against restraining orders, injunctions, and damage suits with a view to resolving such matters quickly and efficiently.
