Infringement of rights in confidential information
It is possible to protect information which is sensitive to your business, such as know-how and trade secrets, through rights in confidential information.
These are not strictly intellectual property rights but come under the IP umbrella as they protect sensitive technical or commercial information.
A breach of confidential information usually (but doesn’t always) occur where an employee, ex-employee or business partner shares such information with third parties.
There can be time sensitivities if this kind of information has been leaked. We have the knowledge and wide experience of being able to take swift action as the circumstances may dictate. We have successfully represented multinational corporations down to SMEs in such matters.
If we can assist you in any way, or if you simply want to discuss any intellectual property issue, please contact us at any time.
