In an increasingly information-based economy populated with an ever more mobile and transitory workforce, the protection of proprietary information and other business assets is essential.
Our lawyers have decades of experience meeting these objectives, in the boardroom and the court room. We work with employers to know their business, understand their culture, identify their legally protectable interests, and plan and develop a protective web of expectations and standards, internal controls, procedures, and contractual rights, such as covenants not to compete, solicit, hire and/or disclose. We can then better help clients attract and retain talent through executive contracts that address the full span of potential subjects and avoid or mitigate harm when executives depart. We also have significant experience enforcing proprietary and business information rights through cease-and-desist letters, post-separation negotiations, and fast-track litigation involving expedited discovery and motions for injunctive relief.
