San Francisco Intellectual Property Theft Lawyer
Intellectual property can include trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and other confidential information. When a company illegally uses intellectual property that belongs to you, it is called an infringement. If you own or operate a California business, and if your intellectual property (IP) is protected as a trade secret, you may need an experienced San Francisco intellectual property theft lawyer to help you stop the unauthorized use of your property and to help you recover compensation for the losses you suffer. A company’s intellectual property is often its most important asset, and a huge part of the company strategy, so it must be kept confidential and not shared with the competition. At the San Francisco firm of Geonetta & Frucht, our experienced San Francisco intellectual property theft lawyers can help you seek recovery when a competitor has obtained any of your intellectual property, including your creative work, technology, trademark, patent, customer lists, by illegal or improper means. With more than fifty years of combined legal experience representing businesses and business owners in intellectual property law disputes in the San Francisco Bay Area community and throughout northern California, we are the San Francisco intellectual property theft lawyers that business owners have come to depend on for the protection of their intellectual property and for legal action against those who misappropriate it. If you have questions regarding intellectual property theft, seek counsel from Geonetta & Frucht.
WE FIGHT UNTIL JUSTICE IS YOURS
Assuming you possess intellectual property, and assuming you’ve taken the appropriate steps to preserve its secrecy (non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, for example), to have a valid cause of action for misappropriation of trade secrets, you must have evidence that the defendant used improper means to acquire it, use it, or disclose it. Those improper means can be a contract violation or a simple case of the defendant exceeding his or her authority to use the property. If your intellectual property has been misappropriated, the experienced San Francisco intellectual property theft lawyers at Geonetta & Frucht will fight passionately for the compensation you deserve for the damages you’ve suffered. While there is never a guarantee in any particular case, we have the skill, knowledge, experience, and tenacity to advocate on your behalf until justice is yours.
