Non-Disclosure Agreement Dispute Guide

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 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
