W.R. Samuels Law: Drafting Robust Legal Documents To Protect Trade Secrets

Trade secrets can broadly be defined as information that is known only to a business that provides value to the enterprise. Additionally, trade secrets which become public knowledge lose their protected status. As such, trade secrets require extensive IP experience and discipline to minimize potential exposure risks. 

Clients need systems and plans for sharing trade secrets with employees and contractors without compromising their legal protections. By drafting robust non-compete, nondisclosure, confidentiality, and employee agreements, W.R. Samuels Law is able to ensure that clients can continue to do business without compromising the company's trade secret protections.
