Restrictive Covenant & Trade Secret Lawyers | McDermott Lawyers

Trade Secrets and Restrictive Covenants


In today’s crowded marketplace, competitive advantage is critical to sustaining your success. Departing executives, newly hired teams of employees and a cutthroat competitive landscape create vulnerabilities and require vigilant defense. Widespread remote work environments increase your risk of exposure in a way that existing protocols may not be designed to address.

To mitigate that risk and protect the trade secrets, client/customer relationships and proprietary and confidential information that gives you a competitive edge, we assess, draft and implement restrictive covenant agreements related to non-compete, non-disclosure and non-solicitation in each applicable jurisdiction. In addition to our experience and skill, you benefit from our global capabilities and collaborative, cross-practice approach with our intellectual property, privacy and cybersecurity, and executive compensation colleagues.
