Trade secrets and know-how are often the heart of a company. This core is vulnerable if insufficient precautions are taken to protect it.
“Protection against unauthorized obtaining, use, disclosure of information” as it is essentially set out in the statutes may at first sound awkward, “piracy of documents”, as named until recently, almost too romantic.
Our practice shows just how explosive and severe this topic is for you. If protection by copyright, design or trademark law is unavailable, a temporary injunction based on infringement of trade secrets may on the other hand prove successful.
