Few things are as important in today’s economy as trade secrets. A trade secret is any process, formula, pattern, device, or collection of information which is used in a business in order to gain an advantage over competitors. Keeping your trade secrets confidential can make the difference between success and bankruptcy. Unfortunately, many businesses do not adequately protect such information. The Dallas business law lawyers of the Johnson Firm have extensive experience in litigating state and federal disputes over infringements on trade secrets and are ready to assist you. Call our attorneys today to schedule an initial consultation.
Business law attorneys aggressively protecting Dallas companies who have had their trade secrets violated
There are a number of things which may constitute a trade secret. They are all incredibly important. Disputes in this area of the law typically revolve around:
- Formulas or algorithms
- Computer software
- Specialized hardware
- The design of a product
- Blueprints or plans
- Modifications to an existing machine or process
- Business methods and processes
- Customer lists
- Internal business policies
If any of these interests have been violated then the first step should be to have the infringement stopped to avoid further damage. Once the wrongful actions have been brought to a halt then the next step is to begin the process of recovering damages for the wrong done to your company. Hiring an attorney versed in this area of the law is crucial.
Our Dallas lawyers assist companies who have had their trade secrets violated or stolen. Once retained we will quickly demand a cease to any further infringement. We will quickly file for injunctive relief with state or federal court, which is a request that the wrongful acts stop immediately, in the event that the other party ignores the demand. We will use the civil litigation process to seek damages for the economic harm that has been done to your business. We understand that the violation of a trade secret can bring a company to its knees; we will aggressively protect your interests. The attorneys in our Dallas office also service Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Denton, Fort Worth, Garland, Irving, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Nacogdoches, Lufkin, and Center, Texas.
