Milwaukee Trade Secrets Lawyer
Trade secrets are any piece of information that provides a business any advantage over their competitors. Trade secrets take many forms such as formulas, ingredients, patterns, designs, or processes. Companies protect against the theft of their trade secrets by having employees sign contracts. If you have signed a non-disclosure contract and have revealed information that you agreed to keep secret, you may be subject to federal criminal charges. No matter the complexity of your case, turn to the Milwaukee criminal defense lawyers of Hart Powell, S.C. to protect your rights throughout the legal process.
In order to oppose the claims of the prosecution, our attorneys will work to raise questions whether or not the owner of the trade secret took the appropriate measures to keep the information secret, as well as whether or not keeping the information secret adds any economic value to the information. On a larger scale, the Economic Espionage Act of 1996 protects businesses in the United States from anyone seeking to steal U.S. business secrets to benefit themselves or a foreign entity. Convictions will not only ruin your reputation and result in jail time, but will also affect your family and future career opportunities.
