Portland Restrictive Covenant Lawyer
Northwest Trade Secrets Law Firm
Valuable information or intellectual property which is critical to the success of your company, requires an enforceable non-compete agreement. Requiring employees, vendors, partners or anyone else with confidential access to the information to sign a covenant not to compete can keep critical information out of the public domain, maintaining the integrity of your product.
A similar strategy involves protecting a formula, process or other valuable component of your business as a trade secret. When a covenant not to compete or a trade secret agreement has been violated, you need experienced counsel to move quickly to minimize the damage.
At the Mead Law Firm P.C., we have protected the rights of Oregon-based individuals and companies in restrictive covenant and trade secret litigation for over two decades. Attorney George Mead wrote an opinion letter supporting the concept of enforceable restrictive covenants that has been cited as authoritative by the Supreme Court of Canada. We offer large law firm experience in a small law office setting, making certain you work directly with a lawyer throughout the process.
