Trade Secret Litigation
A key employee leaves your company, gets hired by a competitor, and spills the beans about everything. Senior-level officers and core employees move around a lot, especially in the technology industry, sometimes taking and then using your customer lists, software, and even business agreements. Our practice counsels trade secret owners about those issues. Ideally, we help clients protect their secrets by developing protocols to avoid misappropriating others’ secrets and defend against claims of trade secret misappropriation. In cases where the cat may already be out of the proverbial bag (or on the verge thereof), Leason Ellis has successfully litigated for both plaintiffs and defendants.
