This group at Maynard Cooper & Gale litigates, provides counseling and drafts policies and agreements concerning all types of business torts and unfair competition issues including those involving non-compete, non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements, trade secrets, employee loyalty, and tortious interference. We realize that our clients’ confidential and proprietary information and customer relationships are crucial to their business and must be protected. When our clients’ proprietary information is stolen or compromised, or when someone interferes with our clients’ relationship with their customers, we are experienced in investigating and taking immediate action to protect our clients’ interests.
Our attorneys not only have the substantive knowledge of the law in these areas but also the strategic judgment to enforce or defend against enforcement successfully. Because these laws differ from state to state, we stay up to date on the recent developments in these areas nationwide and are frequent lecturers on this topic to trade groups and clients. We fully appreciate that such litigation is a high stakes matter and are therefore prepared to aggressively protect our clients’ interests. Our attorneys have significant courtroom experience in these areas and have tried these matters in federal and state courts throughout the country.
We also provide counseling and drafting for our clients on the best practices for implementing agreements and policies to protect their assets, information and relationships; for the minimization of risk in the recruitment of employees or groups of employees; and for effective investigations and responses to situations involving theft of confidential and trade secret information.
Our goal is to provide comprehensive coverage for our clients in all these areas.
