We are aware of how important it is for business to protect their know-how. The experience gained over the years, work organization and technological processes are very valuable. Business owners are willing to implement measures to protect their trade secret.

It happens, however, that the steps taken, although formally correct, are in practice burdensome to apply or practically unenforceable.

Thanks to the experience gained, our lawyers know how to prepare and apply legal measures to protect your trade secret so that it is effectively protected.

Trade secret. First: education

Cases when an employee deliberately discloses an employer's trade secret are relatively rare. Much more often, leakage of confidential information occurs as a result of gaps in IT systems or technical security.

What happens frequently, however, is unintentional disclosure of a trade secret. It results from the fact that an employee does not know that what he or she does and says may cause such data leaks.

Employees often have a formal obligation to keep information provided by employers confidential. They sign documents, not fully understanding what they actually mean for their everyday work.

In our opinion, an effective way to prevent disclosure of an employer's confidential information is education of employees. It is advised to explain to employees which of their actions may cause such disclosure. Clear and easy examples are far more understandable than complicated contractual provisions and high monetary penalties.
