Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Trade Secrets and Unfair Competition Litigation
You and your company have invested significant time, money and energy creating new and innovative products and services, cultivating client relationships, and developing confidential, proprietary and trade secret information that have helped you gain a competitive advantage in your industry. Can you afford to see these investments walk out the door along with your former employees?
The attorneys of the Trade Secrets and Unfair Competition Litigation team of Quarles & Brady LLP's Litigation Group understand the critical importance of protecting those investments. While this is particularly true of manufacturers, developers of new technologies and companies with large sales organizations, many other organizations have some form of proprietary information, customer data or trade secrets that may be entitled to some form of protection.
When valued employees, with valuable knowledge, move from one employer to another, we work with businesses to evaluate the immediate and long-term situation, and institute litigation, where necessary, to enforce restrictive covenants; noncompetition, nonsolicitation and confidentiality agreements; and act to protect their assets and property through temporary restraining orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions and other legal action. In such situations, speed is often essential to protecting our clients’ interests. Our attorneys have both the skills and experience to help clients determine the appropriate course of action and take necessary, rapid steps on our clients' behalf.
We have represented employers in nearly every industry, of every size and structure, and in state and federal courts across the country. This familiarity with industry-specific issues, state and federal regulations, and the unique needs of employers on both sides of the table, enables us to help clients quickly determine and initiate effective, appropriate responses to emerging situations.
Although resolving immediate issues is often our top priority, we also keep an eye toward prevention. Our Labor and Employment Practice Group works with clients to identify weaknesses in their employment agreements; noncompetition, nonsolicitation and confidentiality agreements; and restrictive covenants, enabling them to better protect their key assets.
