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,  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.
