Trade Secrets Lawyers | Trade Secrets Protection Attorneys

Before filing a patent, some businesses may want to consider trade secrets protection instead.

Business information is only a trade secret if it is protected from disclosure. Businesses may choose to treat information as a trade secret, rather than filing a patent on it, to prevent the public disclosure of such information. More importantly, while a patent has a fixed life span, a trade secret – if it is maintained as a trade secret – has an indefinite life span. For example, the Coca Cola formula is probably one of the world’s most valuable trade secrets.

Information & Competitive Advantage – Why Businesses Need Trade Secrets Protection

Most businesses have valuable information, such as customer lists, specially priced contracts, and supplier lists, all of which provide them with a competitive advantage in the marketplace, and may need trade secrets protection. The trade secrets lawyer group at Vethan Law Firm, P.C., counsel businesses in keeping such information private and confidential, away from the prying eyes of their competitors.
