Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets

Weil has successfully represented an array of clients as both plaintiffs and defendants in trade secret and restrictive covenant matters.

In a business environment defined by ever increasing competition and technological evolution, some of the world’s most sophisticated companies are repeatedly turning to Weil to defend and protect their vital trade secrets and business practices.

We utilize our global footprint to partner with clients on complex trade secrets issues regardless of the nature of the transaction, venue for the litigation, or headquarters of the client. Importantly, we have an established presence in the traditional “hotbeds” where trade secrets and related IP and employment issues are frequently litigated, including California, New York, and Texas. This presence allows us to efficiently handle the most complex, multi-jurisdictional disputes.

In addition to our experience handling significant trade secrets disputes in the courtroom, Weil also has experience conducting internal investigations and pre-litigation counseling to top-tier companies. Weil is regularly retained to provide pre-dispute counseling with respect to novel or other “first-of-kind” issues that often need to be addressed completely, discreetly and expeditiously, whether working for a potential claimant or potential defendant. We regularly advise, counsel, and train clients with respect to issues relating to non-compete, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements and trade secret protection.
