With on-going business counsel, we help you understand and resolve virtually any legal issue that could affect the well-being of your company. We focus on our clients’ needs, crafting strategies that best protect your interests and allows for your business’s success.

Trade Secret/IP 

Trade secrets and intellectual property (“IP”) can be among the most valuable intellectual property in a company, reflecting cutting-edge innovations, competitive advantage and the contributions of key personnel. Without an effective IP strategy, a company’s long-term profits and success are effectively capped. This goes for both startups and established companies. We work to investigate, pursue, and defend allegations of trade secret misappropriation to protect our clients’ most valuable intangible assets related to licensing, non-compete agreements, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, employee defections, and industrial espionage.

Fraud/Deceptive Trade Practice

Deceptive and unfair business practices come in many forms. Any time a competitor or rival appropriates your goodwill or reputation, or causes confusion in the marketplace as to the source of your good or service, they have engaged in unfair competition. In Florida, unfair competition claims are primarily governed by state law, including common law and the Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA). Some of the unfair competition and deceptive business practices claims that we handle include:

  • Fraud

  • Misrepresentation

  • Unconscionable contracts

  • Trademark infringement

  • Copyright infringement

  • Misappropriation of trade secrets (theft)

  • Common law misappropriation of ideas and business methods

  • Business defamation (libel and slander)

  • Antitrust violations

  • Predatory pricing

  • False advertising

  • Tortious interference with a business relationship or contract

  • Breach of fiduciary duty

  • Violation of non-compete and non-solicitation agreements
