We Will Help You Take Care Of Trade Secrets

Your business's trade secrets are what set you apart from the competition. Whether it is your unique design for the machine parts you make or your old family recipe for chili, this sensitive information helps you turn a profit and build your dreams.

If you have been the victim of trade secret theft or accused of misusing another business's proprietary information, contact Evans Law. Since 1995, we have represented businesses in the New Orleans area facing litigation under the Louisiana Unfair Trade Practices Act (LUTPA) related to trade secrets.

How To Safeguard Your Trade Secrets

While you cannot eliminate the possibility that one of your trade secrets is stolen, you can take steps to minimize the risk. Here are five examples:

  • Identify the information that you want to keep secret and create a system for identifying future trade secrets.
  • Make sure you know where sensitive information is stored and who has access to it.
  • Put password protection on all computers with trade secrets on them.
  • Train your employees on proper handling of trade secrets and have them sign nondisclosure agreements.
  • Ensure proper security at your workplace, which can range from a locked file cabinet in your office to posting security guards and requiring employee badges.

These are just a few steps you can take to keep your trade secrets safe. For more advice tailored to your business's specific needs, consult one of our business law attorneys. We are also seasoned litigators who will go to court to protect your intellectual property, if necessary.
