We protect the rights of businesses and business owners who have been victimized by unfair trade practices, including:

1. Violations of trade secrets: If you own intellectual property such as a formula, pattern, program, device, method, or process that provides economic value, you can protect it as a trade secret. Once legally protected, if your trade secret is violated by a former employee, business partner, or associate, we work to help you recover full and fair damages for your losses. We can also help you obtain a cease and desist order, preventing any further misuse of your trade secret.

2. Misappropriation of intellectual property: Our San Francisco intellectual property lawyers can help you recover damages when a competitor has illegally or improperly acquired your intellectual property, including the names of your clients, trademarks, copyrights, patents, creative work, and technology. If someone illegally uses your intellectual property, is is called an infringement.

3. Wrongful disclosure: Most corporate employers require their employees to sign agreements stating they will not disclose confidential information. These agreements are usually effective in protecting your intellectual property. However, if a former employee, partner, vendor, customer, or other business contact breaches a non-disclosure agreement, we work to help you recover damages for the losses you suffer, including punitive damages if the wrongful disclosure was willful.
