Schalast | Trade secrets
Trade secrets comprise a wide variety of valuable knowledge relating to a company, the most important being know-how. In many cases such secrets are not (and cannot) be protected as intellectual property rights. This is where our expertise in the laws of trade secrets can help. The number and importance of trade secrets which successful companies keep confidential are growing at an extraordinary pace. At the same time, valuable know-how can easily be stolen with just a few mouse clicks.
We advise companies on the security measures that are available and the safeguards they can (and by law: have to) implement to have their know-how protected. Also, we take action against infringements of business secrecy both in and out of court.
