Can you keep a secret?

Posted in Confidential Information, Trade Secrets tagged , , at 3:19 pm by Tom Jacobson

In today’s business world a company’s greatest asset is sometimes the confidential information it and no one else has.  For example, a company’s customer lists, marketing plans, business strategies, formulas, and information of all types can be extremely valuable when it is not known to the public.  It becomes valuable because it is a secret.  But can you keep that secret?  Or, is your company at risk to lose that information with the click of mouse by a departing employee?

One helpful tool for protecting confidential information is the Minnesota Uniform Trade Secrets Act, http://bit.ly/h5oN6l.  If you are interested in learning more about how to use this statute to protect your company’s valuable trade secrets, I invite you to attend a free seminar from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at the Alexandria, Minnesota Holiday Inn on April 5, 2011.  The seminar will be co-hosted by my law firm and the law firms of Briggs and Morgan and Tillitt McCarten Johnson & Haseman.
