Trade Secret Protection

The unauthorized disclosure of trade secrets, frequently by former employees, may result in an award of compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorneys fees and injunctive relief under both Federal Law and State Law, so long as the employer takes reasonable measures to protect the secrecy of the information.  Reasonable measures include confidentiality agreements, marking the information as secret and limiting access to the information.
