Trade Secrets and Confidential Data
Among the most valuable Intellectual Property assets are the industrial and commercial secrets, species of the genus "trade secret," that is, information deserving of legal protection for its confidentiality and economic value.
All companies, regardless of size or market segment, deal with a large volume of strategic information in their activities and, at some point in time, reflect upon which pieces of information they should protect, upon preventive measures they should adopt, or even upon situations involving acts of unfair competition.
Our professionals are able to provide specialized services in the areas of contract (by preparing clauses and confidentiality agreements), advisory, and litigation. For instance, the partner Elisabeth Kasznar Fekete is an expert on the subject, having lectured on it many times. Ms Kasznar Fekete has also published the book “O Regime Jurídico do Segredo de Indústria e Comércio no Direito Brasileiro” (“Trade Secrets Under Brazilian Law”).
