Employee Mobility and Trade Secret Litigation

Trade Secret and Employee Mobility Litigation

A tech-driven economy sets up a seeming conflict – businesses cannot survive without vigorously protecting their trade secrets, while businesses cannot thrive without employees and entrepreneurs having freedom to freely and fairly compete in the marketplace.

Grellas Shah’s litigators have represented numerous companies, entrepreneurs, and employees in high-stakes trade secret and unfair competition disputes, as well as disputes arising from non-compete, non-solicit, and other restrictive covenants.

Our expertise goes beyond litigation.  We regularly provide counseling to employees and entrepreneurs on how to navigate employee mobility issues and to companies on best practices to protect their trade secrets and confidential information.
