The law regarding trade secrets and proprietary business information (intellectual property) is changing as rapidly as technology. Like most other states, the State of Texas has statutes and common law that protect the employer against theft and misappropriation of trade secrets. Many businesses are recognizing the importance of protecting their intellectual property and the impact of that protection on their bottom line.
In the fast-moving business climate, employees also tend to need careful technological or intellectual property advice regarding their change of employment or entrepreneurial ventures. The Law Offices of Christopher Kalis is experienced in counseling clients regarding such matters and can litigate these issues when necessary.
TRADE SECRET ADVICE
Being proactive when running your business and educating employees about trade secrets is important. A trade secret attorney can offer trade secret advice to help you set up programs that can both maintain the integrity of those secrets and encourage employees to be a part of the process. Trade secret counseling also helps with hiring practices, especially hiring individuals from a competitor.
At the Law Offices of Christopher Kalis, we offer trade secret advice that helps our clients in and around Dallas build important relationships between managers and employees that help them to feel that they have a stake in keeping these things a secret.
Dallas Intellectual Property Litigation
The Law Offices of Christopher Kalis can assist with the preparation of written trade secret agreements for companies of all sizes. In order to protect such companies from the unlawful disclosure of trade secrets and confidential information, our lawyers utilize their knowledge of employment agreements and restrictive covenants to restrain employees from using or disclosing trade secrets and confidential information. We also offer intellectual property litigation in Dallas for businesses that need our legal experience and representation.
Recently, the Law Offices of Christopher Kalis filed suit in Oklahoma City to protect the trade secret and confidential information of a client. After only one day of trial, the matter was settled, and the former employees agreed to abide by a temporary restraining order for 18 months, allowing the client to continue to expand his business in Oklahoma. This is a good example of effective use of trade secret laws to help a business client’s company grow in a new market, without unfair competition.
