Trade Secret Law

Intellectual Property Law – Trade Secrets

When a new expression, invention, or idea is created, and before it is shared publicly, it has legal protection as a trade secret. Trade secrets are those ideas or knowledge that have value because they are not publicly known. Using trade secrets effectively is part of building your IP strategy—trade secrets last for as long as they remain secret, so they can be a powerful and cost effective alternative to patents or licensing. For setting up your strategy, or enforcing boundaries if someone has misused or stolen your confidential information, Immix attorneys have the experience to help protect your ideas.
