How will you respond when accused of trade secrets theft?

The police minister’s wife is accused of using trade secrets from her former employer in a corporate espionage case!

Trade secrets work both ways either you will accuse someone of stealing yours or someone will accuse you of stealing theirs, so how do you prepare?

It is an unavoidable fact that trade secrets litigation is on the rise and also that relationships end in dispute.

It is sensible to make some preparations.

In the Police minister’s wife case, she is accused ‘conspiring to poach her former employer’s client list for their new firm, leading to losses of approximately £1.5m’.

One red flag for me is the ‘delay in wiping her laptop’ …. it did not happen until after she had left the business!

At Exalt IP we help prepare for such eventualities.
