Silicon Valley Trade Secret Lawyers

Trade Secrets Litigation

Your business probably has information that, if put in the hands of a competitor, could materially harm your company. It is critical to protect that information.

If trade secrets were taken from your business or if you were accused of taking or accepting trade secrets, call the San Francisco trade secret attorneys at the Hayes Scott Bonino & Ellingson, LLP, law firm in Redwood City.

  • Losses of trade secrets are often the result of employee or contractor data theft.
  • Customer lists and data relevant to clients could be classified as a trade secret if the lists include information that is not public knowledge — for example, the name of the contact person at a company.
  • Secret formulas, software source code and secret manufacturing processes are often a business's competitive edge.

Serving Tech Companies and Entrepreneurs in the Heart of Silicon Valley

It is important to react quickly when you are aware of trade secret theft. The sooner you respond, the sooner the other party can be enjoined from using your secrets. If an employee leaves and starts a competing business or if you see evidence that your trade secrets are being used, talk to a lawyer.

We also represent individuals and business interests involved in trade secret litigation involving non-compete agreements and employment contracts.

Employees may be recruited by other companies to come to work for them — and bring trade secrets. We are available for counsel on how to educate your employees on their responsibilities regarding trade secrets.
