Facing a Non-Disclosure Agreement Dispute? Call (713) 489-1215 Now.
A non-disclosure agreement is essentially a contract that prohibits an
individual from disclosing valuable secrets of the particular company.
Non-disclosures are typically created by employers and signed by employees.
If you have been accused of violating a non-disclosure agreement, or if
a party has violated the terms of your non-disclosure agreement, speak
with a Houston non-disclosure litigation attorney today.
The purpose of a non-disclosure is to prevent an employee from leaking
company secrets to the public or to a competitor in order to protect a
business' competitive advantage in their respective industries and
markets. A non-disclosure is just like any contract - it is enforceable
and the breaching party can be held liable if the terms are violated.
Non-disclosure agreements are commonly used for:
- Protection of trade secrets
- Keeping a company's information confidential
- Protecting information regarding a new business idea or an unreleased product
- Safeguarding intellectual property
