Trade Secrets

Trade secrets, often considered to be a company’s most precious and competitive assets, are fundamental elements of your intellectual property. Their protection is of paramount importance and leaving trade secrets unprotected can often threaten a company’s success.

A trade secret, through which a business can obtain a competitive advantage, will naturally vary from sector to sector and can include formulas, databases, methods, processes, computer programs, source codes, genetic databases, chemical values and much more.
