A trade secret is information that derives independent economic value from not being generally known by other persons. Protecting trade secrets can be quite difficult as they are often coveted by other businesses. If an employee or another company has misappropriated or stolen your trade secret, you should seek immediate assistance from an experienced intellectual property attorney. Our lawyers are familiar with the California Uniform Trade Secrets Act (California Civil Code sections 3426-3426.11) and can conduct a thorough investigation into your trade secret rights to determine potential remedies.
Trade Secret Misappropriation
To prove a claim of trade secret misappropriation requires:
- A trade secret;
- A showing that reasonable precautions were taken to prevent disclosure of the secret information; and
- That defendant wrongfully acquired the information.
Foldenauer Law Group has prosecuted many business disputes for our clients resulting in settlements and awards of millions of dollars. We have defended business owners and obtained “zero dollar” and “nuisance value” settlements. We have litigated cases resulting in early case dismissals and through jury or bench trial resulting in defense verdicts. We have built our success on nearly 30 years of combined experience and have a proven track-record. It’s no accident. We work exceptionally hard to obtain extraordinary results for our clients.
We are selective. We limit the number of cases we accept at any given time to ensure that our clients’ cases receive the extra time and effort needed to achieve extraordinary results.
To us – everything matters.
