Carmody lawyers understand that extreme diligence is required to effectively safeguard and defend trade secrets. To this end, we develop trade secret strategies for clients for the identification, protection, and licensing of trade secrets. We also help clients pursue claims of misappropriations and respond to threats arising from unfair business practices and trade secret disclosures, recovering damages, and exacting reparations when possible. Carmody helps clients meet these challenges through an integrated service model with antitrust lawyers who are at the forefront of this emerging area of law. We provide legal counseling and litigation services to major corporations and small companies on a variety of issues, including the Connecticut Trade Secrets Act, civil and criminal litigation, employee movement, and unfair competition and government investigations, as well as joint ventures and multinational investigations.
