Trade Secrets

Protection of trade secrets is key to retaining a competitive edge in several industries including food and beverages, consumer goods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, textiles, heavy engineering, and high technology. Although trade secrets are very important, they can be very difficult to define and protect. To further complicate matters, India has no statutory framework for governing trade secret issues.

To assist clients, our trade secrets practice group focuses on various aspects of trade secret protection which includes strategic advice for employers, R&D centers, entrepreneurs and startups across all industries. Some of our assignments include preparing invention assignment deeds, joint-development agreements, research and manufacturing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, technical know-how transfer agreements, employment agreements, non-disclosure agreements (NDA), non-compete, non-solicitation agreements, non-circumvention agreements, and litigation and arbitration of claims arising from such agreements.
