TRADE SECRETS THEFT
Most people don’t realize that trade secrets theft costs U.S. Businesses billions of dollars each year.
Most people imagine foreign hackers breaking into your business computer network, but the truth is that 90% of trade secrets theft is by business partners and employees of your company.
A significant number of ex-employees take confidential business information when they leave the company.
Many times when a key employee leaves to work for your competitors, the employee is induced to steal important business information (customer lists, pricing info, etc.). This can give the new employer an unfair business advantage.
This conduct is illegal under Texas law, not to mention unethical. If you would like to speak to a Texas business litigation attorney in Houston, The Woodlands, Conroe, Spring, or Montgomery County, then give us a call for a free consultation (832) 592-1108.
