Texas Business Trade Secret Protection Attorney
While many companies depend on consumer interest in creative works and inventions to drive revenue, others derive profits from keeping created information closely guarded. At my Austin, Texas, law firm, I advise clients on trade secret litigation — helping them keep competitive information private and secure, including trade secrets involving customer lists, formulas, patterns, devices, and compilations.
I work with clients throughout Texas and occasionally in other states. My clients’ businesses span numerous industries, including manufacturing, computer science, and retailing. When trade secrets are misappropriated, I help these clients respond with litigation, including temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions to stop the use of the trade secrets, and disclosure of the trade secrets to others.
I tailor my litigation strategy to my clients’ business needs. For trade secret plaintiffs, I focus on obtaining prompt injunctive relief. For defendants, I focus on helping clients defend their use of legitimately acquired information.
As a lawyer with 20 years of experience, I have the resources, knowledge and skill necessary to help clients achieve the best possible results in trade secret and other Business Litigation matters. I thoroughly prepare every case for the possibility of a trial while searching for settlements and compromises that are acceptable to my clients.
Quick Action That Protects Trade Secrets
I work closely with my clients, providing a very high level of personal service. This often includes keeping key competitive information private and secure by taking quick action to obtain temporary restraining orders or preliminary injunctions while litigation is pending.
I give my clients my personal cell phone number and instruct them to call me at any time, if needed. This includes nights and weekends, 24/7/365. I return phone calls and e-mails as soon as possible, if not immediately, and am constantly working to achieve the best possible resolutions on my clients’ behalf.
