Unfair Competition, Trade Secrets and Copyright
Godwin Bowman & Martinez helps companies who are faced with any form of unfair competition, including
trade secret theft and copyright violations. Our attorneys also help executives
and companies wrongfully accused of such transgressions.
Unfair competition claims may include violations of non-competition agreements,
non-solicitation agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and non-circumvention
agreements, employee raiding claims, theft of trade secrets and proprietary
information, and many other claims that arise out of a former employee's,
vendor's or competitor's actions that aim to undercut your business.
Godwin Bowman & Martinez attorneys are experienced in identifying unfair competition practices
and pursuing legal claims on behalf of companies who have been unfairly
victimized by former employees, vendors, or business partners.
Trade secret litigation is not routine, and experience is what matters
most when a trade secret dispute arises. Courts often conduct injunction
hearings just days – and sometimes hours – after a lawsuit
is filed, and this is often the only “trial” in the case.
Attorneys who can effectively investigate, brief legal issues, and present
evidence under such unique circumstances give their clients a considerable
advantage. On the other hand, employers who lose at the initial injunction
stage rarely get a second chance to present evidence regarding the enforceability
of the agreement at issue.
Godwin Bowman & Martinez attorneys have extensive experience in obtaining temporary restraining
orders, temporary injunctions, and handling specific trade secret issues
at the early stages of the litigation, as we have in lengthy lawsuits
involving multiple defendants.
Copyrights are essential to business, granting the creator of an intellectual
work the exclusive right to use that work. The rise of digital media over
the past two decades has produced new difficulties and opportunities for
those facing copyright disputes.
