Trade Secrets & Non-Compete Litigation


Trade secrets are defined as practices, formulas, designs, processes, instruments, patterns, or a compilation of information that is not generally available to the public. They help businesses obtain an economic advantage over competition and, depending on the jurisdiction, can be considered confidential or classified information. Because a trade secret is not generally known to the public it is the subject of reasonable efforts to maintain its secrets.

Gegan Law Office assists clients with protecting confidential information and trade secrets via the preparation of non-compete agreements, confidentiality agreements and non-solicitation agreements. We offer solid advice to our clients on policies and procedures that help employers avoid receiving trade secrets or confidential information when hiring employees from competitors and on the other side of the coin, we will fight for our clients regarding the misappropriation of trade secrets and confidential information.

We also represent clients in litigating claims to enforce or invalidate non-compete, non-solicitation, or confidentiality agreements and various related business torts such as unfair competition claims, breach of fiduciary duty, and claims of tortuous interference with business relationships or contracts.
