TRADE SECRET

ADLI advises and counsels businesses in identifying information and technology which may best be protected as a trade secret and helps obtain trade secret protection for such proprietary and economically valuable information.

 

Trade secret laws have traditionally been governed by state law according to the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA), which almost all states have now adopted to promote uniformity and consistency across the state lines.  In addition, since 2016, trade secret enforcement can also be initiated under a federal version of the state trade secret laws, known as the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA).

 

Armed with its reputation as the go-to intellectual property law firm for businesses large and small, ADLI provides strategic advice and counseling to businesses whose inventions may be subject to protection as a trade secret or under patent laws, to choose the option that is most suited to their particular structure and goals.  Because maintaining a legally actionable trade secret claim requires adoption and implementation of measures to ensure secrecy of the subject material, ADLI counsels and advises clients on devising and implementing such confidentiality measures to allow clients to maintain a viable trade secret claim.

 

In addition to litigation representation, ADLI’s trade secret services include issuing and responding to cease and desist letters, pre-litigation strategizing and opinion letters, alternative dispute resolution, and licensing.

 

ADLI combines its impressive trade secret counseling and representation capability with a creative and custom-tailored fee structure; a combination, which has earned it a well-deserved reputation as the go-to firm for businesses of any size for counseling and representation in all intellectual property matters.
