Trade Secret Litigation

Haynes and Boone has a nationwide trade secret litigation practice consisting of experienced attorneys in every Haynes and Boone office. Our trade secret lawyers are trial-tested in state and federal courts and know what it takes to get superior results for our clients in and out of the courtroom. John Turner, in fact, prevailed in a two-week jury trial on behalf of a major oil field services provider against a former employee on theft of trade secrets and related claims.

Our litigators have the technological and industry experience to effectively handle all forms of trade secret litigation. We effectively deal with trade secrets involving both hardware (for example, in semiconductor fabricating equipment) and software (such as software for processing everything from customer orders to income tax returns) technologies.

Haynes and Boone’s trade secrets litigators have prosecuted and defended all forms of trade secret disputes, including claims involving theft and espionage between international companies and claims involving breaches of non-disclosure and non-competition agreements. We frequently prosecute and oppose claims for temporary restraining orders (TROs) and permanent injunctive relief, and litigate trade secret disputes through trial and appeal. Whatever the dispute, our trade secrets litigators have the skills and experience necessary to handle its resolution.
