In today's digital age, protecting trade secrets and enforcing restrictive covenant agreements requires a new level of legal sophistication and attention to detail. It is one of the reasons midsize through Fortune 100 firms turn to Schuyler, Roche & Crisham — for the best of both worlds.
Trade Secrets and Restrictive Covenant Litigation
Schuyler, Roche & Crisham is recognized nationally for its expertise in the area of restrictive covenant enforcement, including non-competition agreements, provisions pertaining to the confidentiality of information, and restrictions against employee and/or client solicitation by an ex-employee. In conjunction with this area of practice, the firm also devotes significant attention on its clients' behalf to the pursuit of statutory and common law "trade secrets" claims, as well as litigation involving the "raiding" of employees.
Our approach is driven by the recognition that the success of any business is inextricably linked to its ability to protect and retain competitive assets. To this end, we partner with our clients on everything from the drafting of restrictive covenant agreements and policy implementation to advising, litigating and securing emergency injunctive relief on a state, federal and international level — whenever and wherever warranted. With one such client, UBS (one of the world's leading securities brokerage firms serving private, institutional and corporate clients), we've worked extensively for many years in partnership with UBS' legal department, as its National Recruiting Counsel and in the planning and implementation of a nationwide strategy regarding restrictive covenant and trade secret litigation.
Schuyler, Roche & Crisham attorneys regularly serve as contributing editors to the American Bar Association's treatises in this field, including Covenants Not to Compete — A State-by-State Survey, Trade Secrets — A State-by-State Survey, Employee Duty of Loyalty – A State-by-State Survey, and Tortious Interference – A State-by-State Survey, and are sought-after speakers to legal audiences nationwide on the full spectrum of business litigation practice areas related to restrictive covenant and trade secret enforcement.
