Businesses take certain precautions to ensure that their trade secrets aren’t shared with competitors. If someone publishes or makes use of your company’s trade secrets, you may have a legal claim for trade secret misappropriation. Trade secrets include many types of business, scientific, technical, economic, or engineering information, including:
- Program Devices
Trade secret protection is derived from state law. Due to our deep knowledge of Indiana law, our Indianapolis based business litigation attorneys can assist companies within the state of Indiana with their claims.
In Indiana, in order to make a claim for misappropriation of trade secrets, you must show that:
- The information is a trade secret;
- You took reasonable steps to preserve the secrecy of the trade secret; and
- The defendant misappropriated the secret or used improper means, in breach of a confidential relationship, to acquire the trade secret.
Our experienced business litigation attorneys can advise you on appropriate security measures to protect your trade secrets, or assist you with taking appropriate legal action to enforce your rights when they have been violated.
