Proficient Intellectual Property Protection Attorney Serving Hillsborough & Pinellas County Clients
Your ideas and trade secrets are valuable commodities that deserve protection so that you can profit from them and protect your operations. Letting others into the fold, even those you work with and trust, is always a risk and yet it cannot always be avoided. If your intellectual property has been compromised or stolen, attorney Craig Berman can help you recoup your losses.
Almost all companies hold what are considered trade secrets, or important information that could aid competitors if leaked to the wrong parties. These can include customer lists, invoice information, product specifications, designs, models, or any other sensitive asset. Something is not considered a trade secret if it is easily available to persons outside of the company. These assets are protected by the Florida Uniform Trade Secret Act (FUTSA) and misappropriation is punishable by law.
Most trade secrets are protected under nondisclosure agreements, but that doesn’t always prevent them from getting into the wrong hands. However, if someone did sign a nondisclosure agreement and profited from your intellectual property by means of sale, publishing, or personal use, proving their wrongdoing will be much easier to do.
