Protecting Businesses' Trade Secrets

Strause Law Group, PLLC, has deep experience in negotiating and drafting non-compete, confidentiality, and trade secret agreements for employers and businesses seeking to protect their strategic interests. Not only does our firm negotiate and draft such agreements, but our attorneys enforce these agreements for our clients.

Non-Compete Agreements

Often, non-compete agreements are associated with the idea that they are unenforceable because they are too restrictive on an employee's ability to find employment after departing from their employer. This idea is a misconception. While there are instances when a non-compete agreement can be deemed to be unenforceable, our attorneys possess the requisite knowledge to draft an agreement that both adequately protects our client's interests and passes court scrutiny. At Strause Law Group, PLLC, we tailor the respective non-compete agreement to our client's strategic needs while still maintaining enforceability.

Trade Secret And Confidentiality Agreements

When a person thinks about trade secrets, the idea of the "secret recipe" or unique production method comes to mind, but the term "trade secret" is much more inclusive than commonly thought. For example, trade secrets can include customer lists, prospect lists, marketing plans, and product development plans. So long as information is not generally known to the public, has been the subject of reasonable measures to prevent its disclosure to the public, and provides economic advantage over competitors to a business, it can be considered a trade secret.

Attorneys at Strause Law Group, PLLC, can assist clients in identifying what trade secrets the client possesses and the protections for those secrets. The client's "know how" distinguishes it from other competitors and creates the competitive advantage in the marketplace. Protective measures include drafting a trade secret agreement that complies with and incorporates the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA). Such agreements are essential in protecting against misappropriation. Likewise, lawyers at Strause Law Group, PLLC, enforce and defend our clients against misappropriation of their "know how." Our firm will often draft confidentiality agreements for our clients to ensure further protection to sensitive information.
