Noncompetition, Confidentiality, Trade Secret & Employee Raiding

Together with lawyers in our Trial and Intellectual Property practices, we represent companies in disputes involving the enforcement of covenants not to compete, alleged misappropriation of trade secrets, and efforts by competitors to hire their employees.

Given the expedited and labor-intensive nature of this type of litigation, which typically involves claims for injunctive relief, Jones Day's multidisciplinary approach ensures that clients have at their disposal the necessary resources to litigate these matters effectively.

Former employees who misappropriate trade secrets and confidential information can harm the business of their former employers. Our attorneys are well versed in obtaining injunctions against such unfair competition. We also provide proactive counseling and representation related to the protection of trade secrets and the need for noncompetition agreements before such problems arise. Finally, we also defend employers who are accused of misappropriating the trade secrets or confidential information of others.
