Trade Secrets

Trade SecretIn California, “Trade Secret” means information, including a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique, or process, that: (1) Derives independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally known to the public or to other persons who can obtain economic value from its disclosure or use; and (2) Is the subject of efforts that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy.  A trade secret need not be glamorous to be afforded protection, and can include things such as software code, a recipe, a marketing strategy, or the formula for a soft drink.

Judd Law Group advises clients on how to establish and maintain trade secret protection, including setting up your trade secrets program (design, implementation & training), auditing, and drafting and negotiating non-disclosure and non-compete agreements.  When necessary, Judd Law Group, though litigation and zealous advocacy, will help you assert your trade secret rights and/or defend against misappropriation claims.
