McKinney Confidentiality Agreement Violations Attorney
Confidentiality has always been one of the cornerstones of a successful business. When facing growing competition from around the globe, the ability to retain trade secrets, customer lists, client relationships and much more is integral to the success of North Texas companies. At Lucé Evans Law, we are experienced in litigating confidentiality violations, ensuring key information remains closely guarded.
What Is a Confidentiality Agreement?
A confidentiality agreement is a legal document that protects business information from being disclosed by employees or clients. Employees get access to valuable information such as client lists, customer details, new product launches and business processes. As this gives a business a competitive advantage, it is vital that no one shares this information with outside parties.
As an important part of business law, Lucé Evans Law develops agreements that are enforceable under Texas law. If an employee, client or partner breaks the terms of the agreement, we can litigate to secure successful judgments and fair settlements.
Protecting Your Business From Confidentiality Violations
A confidentiality agreement needs to provide protection to a business, but in order to stand up in court it cannot be overly restrictive. Unfortunately, some employers find out that their agreements are too broad and courts won’t enforce them. Our attorneys are vastly experienced in the field of business confidentiality, and can represent you to enforce a contract or protect yourself in this challenging field.
