Trade secrets, non-competes, and complex litigation

Some companies provide services to their customers, while others produce products. For the companies that provide services, they need to have amazing customer satisfaction and top-tier communication skills so that their customers are happy with the service. For the companies that provide products, they also need to have amazing customer satisfaction, but to achieve that they need unique products (and pieces to their products) to differentiate them from other companies.

This is where trade secrets come into play. A trade secret is a unique piece of information -- may that be a tasty recipe, a critical cog or part, or a special method for production -- that provides that differentiation. It makes a product, and by extension a company, more competitive in the marketplace. These trade secrets are, unsurprisingly, closely guarded. Trade secret laws and intellectual property law cover a lot of ground in this area, as well as non-compete agreements and non-disclosure agreements.

Trade secret litigation can also get very complicated for a company, business, or employee. It requires a full investigation into the security provided for the trade security, as well as analysis of the systems (computer or otherwise) used for the trade secret and the transfer of information.

For these reasons, and many more, it is imperative for all parties involved in trade secret litigation to have legal counsel on their side. The stakes are too high in these cases to proceed with a case without experienced legal representation.
