Trade secrets are an increasingly valuable intellectual property asset in the chemical and life sciences. The best way to secure these assets is to consult with an experienced trade secret attorney.
At Capuano IP, we have experience with complex high-stakes trade secret and employment in the life sciences.
Lead attorney Vincent Capuano holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry and leverages his scientific expertise and experience to protect clients’ proprietary information, processes, and formulae.
With deep insight into the nuances of Massachusetts trade secret and competition law, the complexities of the 2016 Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act, and the challenges of navigating the evolving chemical and life sciences landscape, we also work with clients nationwide to design and enforce comprehensive trade secret protection plans, and to defend against accusations of theft.
We are experienced in asserting and defending claims of trade secret misappropriation and confidential information theft and misuse. Capuano IP works with life sciences clients to design and implement trade secret protection strategies, including:
- Identifying and assessing trade secret holdings
- Designing programs to preserve secrecy, including both physical and data security measures
- Developing strategies to avoid and/or minimize risks of trade secret claims
- Negotiating and preparing confidentiality agreements with employees, partners, suppliers, and customers to protect clients’ trade secrets
We work to protect clients’ proprietary information through litigation, resolve disputes through arbitration, and obtain temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions.
At Capuano IP, we assert and defend trade secret actions in a variety of industries, including:
Our legal team has in-depth knowledge of the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA), the Economic Espionage Act of 1996 (EEA), and state trade secret laws adopted under the UTSA.
