Trade secrets and know-how

Confidential information is currently one of the strategic for companies to pursue their goals and produce value. Sometimes this information can become the subject of specific protection with traditional industrial property titles. However, even when there are no prerequisites for a registered title, the information may still benefit from a form of protection, provided it has value to the company and, for that reason, is kept secret. Thus, business information, internal research, technical-industrial and commercial experience are protectable if they are secret, if they have economic value as secret, and if they are subject to appropriate protection measures. The Firm accompanies its clients in the process of safeguarding confidential information and trade secrets (or trade secrets), through the definition and implementation of a targeted protection strategy, inside and outside the company, from a technical, IT and legal point of view.

  • What is a trade secret?

    Trade secrets are business information and technical-industrial experience, including trade secrets that, in short, provide a competitive advantage to the company and that advantage also arises from the fact that such information is kept secret by the company. A trade secret may be a particular technical-industrial experience, a particular internal procedure or even a specific working methodology.

  • What can constitute a 'trade secret' in my company?

    Each sector has its own peculiarities, and, in turn, each company has its own physiognomy. In general terms, a company's trade secrets are that information and internal knowledge that enable it to operate in a certain way in the market and gain a certain competitive advantage. The way a certain activity is carried out, processes, formulations, or similar elements that one does not want to patent due to strategic choices. Every company, even unsuspectingly, always possesses trade secrets.
