A non-disclosure agreement is essentially a contract that prohibits an individual from disclosing a company’s valuable secrets. Non-disclosure agreements 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, we encourage you to contact Patterson PC today.

Our founding attorney Pete Patterson is an accomplished trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience in a wide variety of business and legal matters, including violations of non-disclosure agreements and employment litigation.

Enforcing Non-Disclosure Agreements

The purpose of a non-disclosure agreement is to prevent an employee from leaking company secrets to the public or to a competitor. A non-disclosure agreement is like other contracts in that it may be enforceable, and the breaching party may be held liable if the terms of the agreement are violated.

Non-disclosure agreements are commonly used for:

  • Protecting of trade secrets
  • Protecting information about a new business idea or an unreleased product
  • Safeguarding intellectual property
  • Keeping client or customer information confidential

Patterson PC represents both employers and employees in disputes over non-disclosure and non-compete agreements. In many cases, the dispute often lies in whether a certain piece of information is “confidential.” We can thoroughly examine the legal wording of the contract to help you determine whether there has indeed been a violation. If we find the violation to be of merit, we are prepared to protect or defend your interests in court.

In general, we first seek to resolve matters through negotiation, mediation or arbitration to avoid costly trial proceedings. However, some cases require a trial, and we always make our cases trial-ready. Doing so puts you in the strongest possible position to win.
