To the extent a business holds identifiable trade secrets it should be protected. Trade secrets may include such elements as proprietary formulae, manufacturing processes and drawings, software, marketing information, business plans, and customer lists. Customarily, the majority of any given organization’s trade secret information is embodied in the knowledge of its employees and the tangible information available on its premises. Protecting trade secrets requires emphasizing confidentiality, such as need-to-know accessibility and security.
Atlanta Technology Law’s counsel focuses on the controls placed upon the distribution of, and access to, such information inside and outside the organization, and how to convey the importance of protecting proprietary business information to the organization’s employees.
We also have experience litigating trade secret claims which frequently arise in connection with employees changing employment.
