Restrictive Covenants & Trade Secrets Vedder Service

For more than 35 years, Vedder Price’s trial lawyers have been at the forefront of counseling and litigation involving restrictive covenants and trade secrets in both the employment and sale-of-business contexts.

You can expect to work with a team of highly responsive and experienced attorneys prepared to act quickly in matters involving litigation or potential litigation, as well as to help you take the right proactive steps with respect to protecting intellectual capital and trade secrets.

Extensive credentials, with a track record for success. In just the past few years, we have successfully prosecuted and defended hundreds of claims involving restrictive covenants and trade secrets at the state and federal trial and appellate court levels—achieving favorable results for clients ranging from Fortune 50 companies to individual entrepreneurs.

Responsive litigation support, plus proactive strategies. We stand ready to litigate when doing so is in a client’s best interest, but we recognize the value of proactive actions with respect to restrictive covenants and protection of trade secrets. Our attorneys are equipped and able to assist with:

  • Drafting, reviewing and updating agreements for prospective and existing employees and independent contractors
  • Designing and implementing policies and procedures intended to either avoid litigation or protect the client’s interest should litigation become necessary
  • Auditing and updating policies and procedures intended to safeguard valuable business and customer information
  • Training employees at all levels on ways to best protect your valuable business assets
  • Providing advice on best practices with respect to employee severance and other separation agreements, as well as agreements relating to the purchase or sale of a business
  • Negotiating prelitigation settlements of restrictive covenant and trade secret disputes
