Misappropriation Of Trade Secrets

An employee opening a new business using his or her former employer’s customer lists, methods of operation or other trade secrets is a common occurrence. The law can protect the employer, but only if a lawsuit is filed quickly. The attorneys of Gray & Becker, P.C., know how to stop the misappropriation of trade secrets and work diligently to protect clients’ interests.

Act Quickly To Protect Your Business

Without a restraining order or injunction, the former employee may cause significant damage to a company by using the company’s proprietary information. Our attorneys can obtain a temporary restraining order to protect a business’s trade secrets and goodwill. The next step is a hearing where we will argue that the restraining order should be converted to a permanent injunction.

The litigators of Gray & Becker, P.C., have many years of experience representing clients in these matters. We assist business clients with various matters related to proprietary information, including:

  • Violations of confidentiality agreements
  • Violations of covenants not to compete (also called noncompete agreements)
  • Unfair competition
  • Trademark infringement
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets
