Trade Secret Litigation
Businesses implement significant safeguards to protect their trade secrets from falling into the hands of competitors. Protecting this valuable information can lead to complex litigation when allegations of misuse arise. Siebman Forrest can represent your interests in trade secret litigation throughout Texas from our offices in Sherman, Dallas, Plano, Tyler, Marshall, and Lufkin.
Trade Secrets and Texas Law
Unlike most states, Texas did not adopt the Uniform Trade Secrets Act until 2013. Texas developed its own culture relating to trade secrets. The enactment of the Texas Theft Liability Act puts a powerful tool in the hands of victims of trade secret misappropriation, but the Act’s loser-pays provision makes it a dangerous two-edged sword. Our attorneys understand the nuances of litigating trade secret claims in Texas. For more than 25 years, we have worked with individuals and businesses to prosecute and defend against intellectual property and trade secret infringement claims.
Whether a trade secret was infringed depends on many factors, such as whether there was a valid non-competition or confidentiality agreement and what actions a party took to protect the information from disclosure. The Texas trade secret attorneys at Siebman Forrest have represented businesses and individuals in trade secret litigation throughout the Eastern District of Texas, both in the pursuit of claims for relief and defending against claims brought by others.
