We recognize that a company's trade secrets are among its most valued assets because they provide invaluable competitive advantages. Our attorneys work closely with clients to properly devise trade secret protection as part of their overall IP strategy. We first help our clients evaluate what proprietary business information should be protected as trade secrets, and then help them create effective, manageable, and defensible trade secret protection programs. As part of IP strategy formulation, Pearl Cohen helps clients decide whether or not to protect an invention as a patent or trade secret. We help our clients optimize their IP protection by prudently analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of each IP protection strategy for the invention, the client, and the business environment.
Pearl Cohen also helps clients ensure that their activities do not give rise to assertions of misappropriating trade secrets from others. In addition, our attorneys’ extensive experience provides our clients with the security of knowing that any misappropriation of their trade secrets or other intellectual property rights will be vigorously prosecuted.
