Trade Secret Protection
A company or business is entitled to protection for many items even it they are not patented. Items such as customer lists, business processes, and inventions among other proprietary interests, can all be subject to trade secret protection.
Often when an employee leaves a company or business there is a chance they may take with them the knowledge of particular business plans, processes and other confidential information that may disadvantage their former employer. At KNMT, we work to protect our clients from the use of misappropriated confidential or trade secreted information.
