Trade Secrets & Noncompete

Bailey Cavalieri’s trade secret and restrictive covenant team helps our clients navigate through these disputes, by advising them of the steps they need to take to minimize their risk of being drawn into them but also being prepared to aggressively litigate them should that need arise. Our team draws on a deep understanding of trade secret and restrictive covenant law and extensive trial experience in litigating these disputes. We represent not only employers who believe their intellectual property may be at risk, but employees accused of misappropriation and their new employers.

Bailey Cavalieri’s trade secrets litigators pursue emergency and expedited proceedings, including TROs and preliminary injunctions, to help clients protect their critical trade secrets and defend against claims of misappropriation. And should a case go to trial, our team is experienced in presenting these disputes to judges, juries and arbitrators.

We have litigated these disputes in virtually every industry, including healthcare, technology and software, manufacturing, financial services, insurance, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food services and military contracts. Our team has represented clients in over a hundred state courts, federal courts and arbitrations throughout the United States, including arbitrations under FINRA and AAA. Because these disputes sometimes involve related intellectual property, our experience in patent or copyrights allows us to take a broad and holistic view of the different areas of the law that might be impacted by that litigation.

Prior to litigation, we advise Fortune 500 and closely-held companies on their agreements and policies to prevent trade secret risk and to be in the best position possible to litigate if the need arises. We do this by gathering critical technical evidence as well as strategically addressing breaches by employees, business partners or vendors. Perhaps just as importantly as our proven litigation results, we provide practical and customized counseling for each and every client.
