PROVIDING EXPERIENCED & EFFECTIVE LEGAL DEFENSE
A trade secret is any confidential plan, formula, or pattern that could benefit or harm a business if it was disclosed. For example, the spices used to make Kentucky Fried Chicken or the formula for Coca-Cola are both trade secrets. Because trade secrets are not registered, such as trademarks or patents, owners do not have a specific limit on how long they can keep exclusive rights. These companies work hard to keep their trade secrets exactly that – a secret. If you have been accused of theft of trade secrets, you should retain strong legal defense right away.

UNDERSTANDING TRADE SECRET THEFT
Figuring out a secret formula on your own and then selling a product made from that formula is not theft of trade secrets because you did not obtain the secret illegally. Therefore, obtaining representation is essential if you have been wrongfully accused of theft of trade secrets. We can look into the incident and build a strong defense strategy on your behalf.
There are many different ways that theft of trade secrets can be committed, such as:
