Business Asset Protection


In an information-driven business environment, companies in every industry face threats to their core – and often irreplaceable – assets:  their intellectual property, trade secrets, client and customer relationships, and their significant investment in human capital.  Many employers are stung by a departing employee who circulates its most coveted secrets by simply pressing “send” on the way out the door.

Threats emerge as well from new hires who may bring to the job restrictive covenants that limit where and how they may perform their roles.  Often these issues do not surface until after the new employer receives a “cease and desist” letter telling them of obligations for which they may not have even been aware.  These events involve complex interdisciplinary areas of the law touching on employment, IP, trade secrets, executive compensation, and litigation.

At Waller, we assist clients throughout the country in matters related to hiring and firing employees who have confidential information from our clients’ assets. Our objective is to help protect intellectual property, client relationships, and human capital.

When matters must be litigated, our attorneys have broad and deep experience securing and defending applications for injunctive relief in many jurisdictions, and we have represented clients whose non-compete interests implicate international issues. We know these cases often ramp up quickly, and we have a nimble team of experienced litigators who can literally drop in to any case on a moment’s notice to protect the client’s interests.

From on-boarding and off-boarding employees to ongoing operations, our comprehensive experience covers every stage of business asset protection:

  • Advising on the strategy for bringing on new hires
  • Creating new and updating employment agreements
  • Training executives and employees on important aspects of protecting company assets
  • Designing and implementing information security protocols to prevent intentional and inadvertent loss of data
  • Defending and enforcing non-compete lawsuits, interference claims, and employee raiding matters
  • Investigating trade secret loss or theft
  • Preventing improper solicitation of customers or employees
