Knowledgeable Assistance In Theft Of Trade Secrets/Unfair Competition Cases

New York state and federal laws provide litigants with protection for their intellectual properties and trade secrets. The rightful owners of intellectual properties and trade secrets may seek damages for their misappropriation and injunctions against their further misuse.

Among the types of materials that may be protectable as trade secrets are: formulas, detailed projections, processes, designs, research and cultivated lists. Under state law, the misappropriation of such information can constitute actionable unfair competition. As of 2016, federal law also provides an avenue to sue in federal court.
