Highly confidential information, essential to the running of your business’ systems and processes, gives you the competitive edge it is your know how.
It is important that your business keeps such confidential information secret from all but those who “need to know”. Trade secrets are protectable with appropriate documentation and much of PCL Lawyers’ work in the area of intellectual property involves the protection of trade secrets or other sensitive information that is not protectable by other statutory means.
A common example is where an employee of a company, who has undertaken an employment contract not to breach the confidence of the employer by disclosing certain information such a trade secret, subsequently does so. Such breaches can cause irreparable damage to your company’s culture, brand, and profit.
Please contact us if you believe that you have either have had a breach of confidence committed against you and you want to consider enforcing your legal rights.
We are experienced in advising those who allege the breach and those who are alleged to have committed the breach.
