Trade secrets are defined as information that can help define a company’s success by making it stand out from the competition. These trade secrets come in many forms. Restaurants have secret ingredients or recipes that they do not release to the public. Software programmers and developers have beta versions of their programs and applications. And all businesses have a list of customers that not even the most trusted, long-time employee is privy to. These trade secrets are protected by Calgary law firms such as GPS, because if the public gleans knowledge of them, this could lead to the business losing its unique edge, thus reducing customer trust and eventually hurting the company’s profitability.
Gemby Professional Services’ team of Calgary lawyers uses several methods in protecting a company’s trade secrets. These include the drafting of confidentiality agreements and rules regarding trade secrets. Confidentiality agreements would need to be signed by suppliers and manufacturers who deal with the company, as well as the company’s own employees. And these employees would have to follow the aforementioned rules in order to stay compliant and avoid the risk of trade secrets leaking out. In case a company is not sure of what would qualify as a trade secret, GPS helps them by ascertaining what type of information can be considered as such. In some occasions, financial compensation is available to those affected by leaked or misused trade secrets. And like many other Calgary law firms, GPS offers a free consultation service to those who would like to know where they stand on trade secrets, among other types of intellectual property law the firm specializes in.
Apart from specializing in trade secrets, Gemby Professional Services also deals with patent law, trademark law, copyright law, licensing and litigation-related cases. In a way, these six facets of IP law all interrelate with each other, as the law firm from Calgary further mentioned in their press statement. “We are a Calgary law firm that believes that intellectual property law is often complicated, yet very key in the everyday existence of a business, may it be large or small. We have always made it a point to hire only the most qualified lawyers, preferably those with previous intellectual property law experience, and invite them to join our pool of talent. With this added focus on trade secrets, we believe we are taking the right steps to maintain the unique characteristics of every business in Calgary we count among our clients, regardless of industry.”
