Trade Secret Overview

Build Trade Secret Barriers with Security Measures and Agreements.

Virtually every piece of useful or valuable information a company creates, from processes, software and other technology to marketing plans, customer lists and other business information, should initially be treated as a trade secret. This boundary of protection should be implemented to safeguard all potentially useful or valuable information from public disclosure and unauthorized use.

From agreements to alliances, CARR trade secret lawyers take an aggressive, long-term view in protecting valuable Intellectual Property assets. Examples the services our attorney provide include:

  • Technology development, license, transfer and escrow agreements
  • Software acquisition, development, license and maintenance agreements
  • Hardware purchase, lease and maintenance
  • Joint industry participation contracts
  • Data processing, facilities management and outsourcing contracts
  • Systems integration contracts
  • Confidentiality, non-solicitations of employees and non-compete contracts
  • Employment, consulting and assignment of inventions agreements
  • Licensing, distribution and maintenance contracts for software and hardware developers, Web hosting companies, distributors, OEMs and VARs
  • Advertising, co-marketing and distribution agreements
