Orrick - Trade Secrets Group

Practice/Organization Description

In a heartbeat, the protection of trade secrets is the number-one priority for many companies, particularly in the technology, biotechnology, financial services and manufacturing industries. Companies in these industries face the daunting task of creating innovative products and services in a world with short product life spans and disappearing employee loyalty. When mission-critical trade secrets are at issue, clients rely on Orrick's years of experience and proven track record to protect themselves. All states allow for protection of trade secrets, even California, where employee non-compete contract clauses are subject to statutory restriction.

Orrick Intellectual Property lawyers have successfully represented clients in all stages of trade secrets litigation, both as plaintiffs and defendants, from prefiling investigations through jury trials and appeals. Recognized by Legal 500 as a top firm for trade secrets litigation expertise, Orrick attorneys also counsel clients on effective, enforceable policies that help prevent the loss of trade secrets, and on prophylactic measures to avoid liability for misappropriation.
