Unfair Competition and Trade Secrets

Employees and employers often have a different view of what belongs to the employer and what the employee may take and use in new employment.  This different perception habitually leads to lawsuits.  We regularly represent employers, employees and  business competitors in unfair competition and trade secret disputes.  We have learned that often a narrow and focused effort gets the best results.  That is why our litigation strategy is always client oriented. We first make sure that the client is fully informed as to options and possible outcomes, and design an approach calculated to achieve the client’s informed goal.
