Misappropriation of trade secrets can be devastating to your business, and you're likely to have many legal questions about trade secrets. Your lawyer will need to understand the nature of the information at issue, the steps you’ve taken to protect this information, whether the disclosure of trade secrets was accidental or intentional, more information about your relationship to the person who disclosed the trade secrets, and whether you have any contractual agreements in place, such as non-disclosure agreements. You can get answers to your legal questions about trade secrets and learn more about the processes you should implement to protect your trade secrets here.
