Perkins Coie represents plaintiffs and defendants, from Fortune 100 companies to startups, in high-stakes disputes as well as counseling matters to prevent the loss of proprietary information and threats to trade secrets. Whether moving swiftly to obtain preliminary injunctions or strategically assembling a trial-tested team to uphold clients’ rights, Perkins Coie is highly experienced with the timing, critical components and compelling arguments of trade secret claims. Our approach is cross-disciplinary, a reflection of the often-technical underlay of these claims.
Our attorneys regularly manage complex, massive, multiparty trade secret litigation in a practical and effective way, two words not usually associated with such cases. More than 100 attorneys focus on trade secret issues and offer comprehensive legal representation in sophisticated, large-scale matters. We have prevailed at trial, secured jury awards, defeated high-risk claims and obtained substantial arbitration awards related to trade secret misappropriation claims.
