The protection of trade secrets is the number-one priority for many companies, particularly in the electronics manufacturing industry. Companies in these industry face the daunting task of creating innovative products and services in a world with short product life spans and disappearing employee loyalty. When mission-critical trade secrets are at issue, clients rely on our expertise and proven track record to protect themselves. Case law allows protection of trade secrets, even in Ontario where employee non-compete contract clauses are subject to statutory restriction.
