Dallas-Fort Worth Non-Disclosure Agreement Lawyer

When you launch a business venture, it is often necessary to give employees access to sensitive information in order for them to do their jobs. Employers are well within their rights to take steps to protect private information through the use of non-disclosure agreements that strictly forbid employees from discussing trade secrets with parties who do not need to know.

Sometimes referred to as NDAs or confidentiality agreements, non-disclosure agreements require the signor to maintain the privacy of proprietary information. Individuals who violate non-disclosure agreements can face a court order to cease further disclosure and may be held liable for damages.

Creating Agreements That Protect Your Rights And Business Interests

The language used in the drafting of non-disclosure agreements and the issues covered in them are critical to protecting your intellectual property rights. In the event of a dispute, the language of the agreement will be picked apart and you will be held to the letter of the terms regardless of your intent. Poorly written non-disclosure agreements can jeopardize your business. Be sure that you have a reliable Dallas-Fort Worth non-disclosure agreement attorney representing you from the start.

The state of Texas is looser than other states on the topic of protecting business information. Here, employees are not prevented from leaving one company and going to work for another in the same industry. But this freedom does not extend to passing company information on to competitors. Such actions can be the subject of litigation, including injunctive actions.
