The value of many businesses consists not in tangible assets but in the services they provide – what they do and how they do it.

Trade secrets can consist of everything from business and financial plans and models to bids for new business, vendor lists, and processes and designs.

Trade secrets are not merely mechanical designs or plans. Rather, trade secret law encompass much the “know how” that businesses have developed slowly over time and is the essence of their value. In service-based businesses, trade secret protection is of surpassing importance.

This program discusses the various forms of trade secrets, threats to their protection in the workplace, fundamental techniques and plans to protect them from loss, and strategies for not losing their value to departing employees.

  • Practical strategies for protecting trade secrets, know-how, and confidential information from departing employees
  • Understanding what’s protectable and what’s not – and how to protect each category of “secret”
  • Establishing multiple layers of protections from policies and practices to agreements
  • Labeling information as confidential, restricting and tracing access, maintaining records
  • Use of non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements
  • What to do when an employee departs – exit interviews and more – and what to do when a disclosure occurs
