Trade secrets may include ideas, products, manufacturing techniques, financial information, formulas or processes. An entrepreneur or business that derives — or may derive — economic value from trade secrets has much to lose when those trade secrets are expropriated or misused by:
- Current or former employees
- Past, present or potential customers
- Any person or business entity with access or exposure to trade secrets
Whenever possible, we urge our clients to take preventive action before trade secrets are taken and sold or abused. However, it may be too late for your business. If that is the case, the trial lawyers at Hatch, James & Dodge, P.C., in Salt Lake City, Utah, can represent you as the plaintiff in a claim or lawsuit. We can help you as you seek to repair the wrongdoing before more harm is done. Our company has a track record of favorable outcomes for past clients in this area.
We also represent defendants in trade secret litigation claims and lawsuits — namely, people or companies accused of taking or misusing trade secrets, including ideas, passwords and other proprietary intellectual property.
Non-Compete / Non-Solicit Litigation
A comprehensive non-compete agreement may be a valid attempt to prevent loss of value to a company that can result when former employees or contractors apply knowledge gained to competitors. However, the more detailed the agreement, the more chances there are for violation of it. Hatch, James & Dodge, P.C., has extensive experience in legal matters involving trade secrets, non-compete, and non-solicit litigation. Our attorneys bring decades of experience to the task of representing both plaintiffs and defendants in these disputes.
