In infringement proceedings, you need to prove that you have taken appropriate confidentiality measures to protect your trade secrets. We help you document all the steps you need to take to protect your rights from the outset.

We also defend you if you are accused of leaking secrets. In doing so, we strategically use all procedural means to make it difficult for claims to be enforced.

Contract Design

Improperly drafted confidentiality clauses in employment contracts or non-disclosure agreements can quickly render them ineffective. Avoid this mistake.
