A trade secret will naturally vary from sector to sector and can include formulas, databases, methods, processes, business plans and much more. Trade secrets are the only type of IP – a “secret sauce” that must not be disclosed and are often considered to be a company’s most precious assets and key to the company’s success. Your start-up’s trade secrets are meant for you and a failure to protect them could have massive financial and legal consequences.
Working with the Ehrlich Group gives you both complete confidence and immediate access to experts who are highly skilled in identifying and distinguishing what needs to be protected as a trade secret, as a patent, or as a combination of both, in any industry.
