“Don’t worry, your secret’s safe with me.” How many times have we heard that? In business, unless you have it in writing, your trade secret is in no way safe.
Our job at intellectual property (IP) law firm Parsons & Goltry is to protect trade secrets and craft effective nondisclosure agreements and noncompete clauses and counsel you as to the best strategy to pursue to maximize your gain from your intellectual property.
Unlike patents or trademarks, which must be revealed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to be protected, the only way to protect a trade secret is to keep it secret. That’s the challenge.
PARSONS & GOLTRY GIVES YOU PEACE OF MIND
Our collaborative lawyers provide legal counsel to individuals, businesses, universities and corporations on the potential issues that may arise from their intellectual property. We also assist our clients by crafting contracts that safeguard their trade secrets — formulas, recipes, processes, customers’ names and business practices, and the like — that make our clients uniquely competitive. We help ease our clients minds by answering questions like:
What if we are using contractors to help develop our invention and are worried someone will steal it and make it public? How can you craft an airtight nondisclosure contract?
A key employee is leaving. How can we prevent him from taking trade secrets that he developed with him when he goes? Is conducting an exit interview enough? And how should we do that?
How do we craft non-competition agreements with all our employees, new or not?
We are selling our company to a larger company. How do we negotiate a non-disclosure agreement that also works to benefit us into the future in this industry?
How can we best limit access to confidential information in our company?
