O’Hagan Meyer attorneys recognize that trade secrets and other proprietary information often are the intellectual property assets that give a company its greatest competitive advantage. Our attorneys counsel clients on best practices for identifying and protecting their valuable trade secrets. We help our clients draft and implement trade secret policies consistent with the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and related state laws, including employment and non-disclosure agreements for personnel with access to trade secrets. While we strive to keep our clients out of litigation, when the need arises our experienced litigators often represent companies seeking to enforce their trade secret rights, as well as companies and individuals accused of trade secret misappropriation.
Our attorneys have extensive experience litigating complex misappropriation claims involving computer hardware and software, manufacturing techniques, formulas and recipes, and proprietary business information such as pricing and customer information.
