Trade Secrets

Meet the Team >

Greenberg Traurig’s Trade Secrets team represents clients in multiple industries and jurisdictions, and is highly experienced in all aspects of investigating and litigating trade secret cases, both at the state and federal levels. We focus on preventing misappropriation and corporate espionage, and have partnered with several forensic experts. We often conduct trade secret audits, assisting clients in minimizing risk by working with them to tailor and conduct a proactive, multidimensional trade secret audit and protection plan. Our team has deep experience in technology, customer list, new business model, and employee trade secret cases, and are well-known for our strategic approaches to trade secret discovery. We bring and defend against applications for temporary restraining orders or preliminary injunction orders and ex parte seizures. Our attorneys have multidisciplinary experience in enforcing restrictive covenants and exposure under the inevitable disclosure doctrine, in those jurisdictions where this form of relief is available, and in the interplay between trade secret laws and the Communications Decency Act, 47 USC 230(c).

We also monitor, write, speak and train clients on continuing developments in this area, including recent legislation, decisions, the Defend Trade Secrets Act, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and the expanded role of the International Trade Commission in preventing foreign trade secret theft. We are ranked among the top 20 firms nationally for Trade Secrets in the Legal 500 United States 2018 Guide.
