Trade Secret Misappropriation

Fargo Patent & Business Law represents both plaintiffs and defendants to settle contract disputes. We have litigated disputes in federal court, state court, arbitration, and through settlement negotiation.

Generally, we work with innovative businesses and inventors to work through contract disputes and issues that may arise.

Contract disputes may include product licenses, general contracts, nondisclosure agreements, noncompete, non-solicitation agreements, and many more.

Our firm works with partnerships, companies, corporations, and many other entities to work through disputes between owners, vendors, and other parties.

Oftentimes entities with multiple owners may need to work through misunderstandings and disputes.

Fargo Patent & Business Law takes cases of patent infringement for plaintiffs and defendants. Our patent litigation plaintiff work pertains to enforcing our client’s patent rights against those who are infringing upon our client’s rights. Patent defense litigation includes work to defend our clients against patent holders who are asserting that our clients have infringed upon someone else’s patent rights.  

Patent infringement is the use, manufacture, or sale of a patented idea without proper permission from the patent owner. Patent litigation may include litigation in federal court (or even in state court), in front of the USPTO, Inter Partes Review (IPR) or other administrative proceedings.

We take trademark litigation cases for plaintiffs and defendents. Our trademark litigation plaintiff work pertains to enforcing our client’s trademark rights against those who are infringing upon our client’s rights. Trademark defense litigation includes work to defend our clients against trademark holders who are asserting that our clients have infringed upon their trademark rights.  

Trademark infringement is the unauthorized use of a mark that is owned by another party. The trademark may be a federally registered trademark or a common law trademark. The standard for trademark infringement is whether the use of the mark is likely to cause confusion as to the source of the product or service.

Trademark Demand/ Warning

  • Notification to someone that they are potentially infringing on a certain trademark right is a common occurrence 
  • A letter from a qualified attorney is sometimes all it takes to deter someone from infringing on a trademark. Do your trademark rights need enforcing? Contact us here.

Trade secret misappropriation is when someone improperly acquires a trade secret of another.  An item or process that is considered a trade secret is confidential information maintained using appropriate standards as established by law.

At Fargo Patent & Business Law, our litigator works both as a plaintiff and defense attorney for trade secret issues. Trade secret issues often include nondisclosure and noncompete issues.

With trade secret misappropriation, a plaintiff may seek an injunction to force their competition to cease using an improperly obtained trade secret.
