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.
Our IP partners leverage their IP strategy and advanced technology backgrounds to protect and defend your IP assets from competitors and ensure the security of your trade secrets, particularly when key executives depart for other companies. On the privacy and cybersecurity front, our colleagues’ deep knowledge and experience helps you structure and enforce privacy agreements and prevent theft of your trade secrets and other confidential information. In executive compensation, we provide seamless, convenient access to a team well-versed in the nuances of creating onboarding packages designed to attract and retain talented executives. Collectively, we work to solidify your market position and facilitate your business growth.
In times of transition with your high-level executives, from hiring and onboarding to their eventual exit, we work with you to provide counsel, implement protocols, negotiate with prior employers and beyond. And when issues arise, you can turn to us for support and decisive action: We have a successful track record prosecuting and defending unfair competition claims involving large scale raiding, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of fiduciary duty and non-compete/non-solicitation agreements in state and federal courts and arbitrations throughout the United States.
As your partner, we use our leading litigation experience and skill to identify the appropriate actions and proper forums to help you achieve your business objectives. Using our deep knowledge of your industry, our priority is to deliver forward-thinking insights and actionable solutions to safeguard your critical assets and the viability of your business.
