California defines unfair competition as "any unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business act or practice and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising." When the wrongful actions of another person or party cause financial harm to your business, you need the counsel of an experienced commercial litigation lawyer. We at Garcia & Gurney, ALC are here to provide you with personable and trusted legal counsel for any business law issue that damages your company's profitability, reputation or daily operations.
According to California Civil Code section 3426-3426.11, a trade secret is "information, including a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique, or process,
- Derives independent economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally known to the public or to other persons who can obtain economic value from its disclosure or use, [and]
- Is the subject of efforts that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain its secrecy."
As a business owner, you own trade secrets such as your client list, marketing information, business strategies and formulas that give you an edge over your competitors. The best way to protect a trade secret is to have employees sign a non-disclosure agreement. If this agreement is violated, you can effectively pursue damages against the defendant.
If your trade secrets are unlawfully compromised by an ex-employee or other party, the consequences can be devastating. At Garcia & Gurney, ALC, our attorneys work tirelessly to protect business owners throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties from such consequences.
