How to resolve a trade secret dispute?

Trade secrets

Dispute Resolution Practice

The EU Directive established powerful enforcement means regarding Trade Secrets misappropriation: Remedies now extend to e.g prohibition of the production, sale, importation or use of infringing goods, defined as goods which significantly benefit from the misappropriated Trade Secret. Damages appropriate to the actual prejudice suffered as a result of the misappropriation are also obtainable.

Gevers aims to help you manage the risk of all kinds of intellectual property (IP) disputes. When such disputes occur, we help to resolve them. We represent IP rights owners whose rights have been infringed as well as entrepreneurs who are accused of infringing IP rights, such as patents, trademarks, designs, copyrights and plant variety rights.

Team members of GEVERS Dispute Resolution practice can help you define an IP litigation strategy at a national or international level while focusing on risk analysis and practical solutions. We believe in resolving disputes quickly, amicably and in a cost-efficient manner.
