Prominent San Francisco Trial Attorney Manages Trade Secret Litigation

Plaintiff and defense representation in actions for equitable relief and damages

Trade secret litigation is among the fastest growing areas of controversy in our nation’s state and federal courts, and California is one of the most active states for this type of dispute. As businesses strive to remain competitive in a rapidly changing marketplace, it becomes tempting to exploit any advantage, even when doing so violates the law or a contractual agreement. Fergus, A Law Office provides the robust and decisive legal representation necessary to limit the damage a trade secret violation can do to your business or your reputation.

Rapid response to limit harm to businesses and reputations

Trade secret litigation is an area of the law that plays directly to my strengths as a legal advocate for businesses and professionals. These are cases that turn on evidence of malfeasance, a reasonable interpretation of contractual language and laws governing intellectual property. I draw on more than 35 years of complex civil litigation experience to assess the facts thoroughly and to act quickly to protect your rights. For plaintiffs, that could mean seeking immediate injunctive relief to halt the violations, followed by actions at law for damages. For defendants, where warranted I assert your right to operate unimpeded based upon objective evidence and a sound interpretation of any restrictive covenants.

The reality of Trade Secret violations points out the importance of having appropriate confidentiality agreements in place with employees and third parties. While there is an inherent tension between cultivating a relationship with employees and trade partners and treating them with suspicion, business owners must be prudent when addressing objective risks. Similarly, a party who is restricted by a nondisclosure agreement can suffer lasting reputational damage if accused of misappropriating trade secrets. These individuals should seek legal counsel to understand the parameters of their non-disclosure agreement so as not to commit any inadvertent violation.
