Business Litigation is subject to rapid expansion in San Diego County. One of the areas that is at the center of this rapid expansion, is Trade Secret Misappropriation Law. San Diego is home to some of the nation’s most important pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Because many of these companies are also competitors, the potential risk for trade secret misappropriation is relatively high.
In most instances, a trade secret dispute arises when an employee of a business leaves that business and either starts a business of his own or is employed by a competing business. After a period of monitoring and investigation, the first business alleges that the employee has misappropriated the trade secrets belonging to that business. Needless to say, the employee does not believe that he or she has misappropriated anything and the dispute becomes the subject of intense litigation.
