Protection of know-how and secrecy

Our lawyers in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe are specialists in secrecy law

Know-how, customer data and other business secrets

Know-how is a core component of the value creation of many companies – and yet it is regularly not adequately protected. Yet protection of secrets can provide a decisive competitive advantage, especially in areas where “classic” property rights such as patents are not always sufficient.

It is not only technical know-how that is worth protecting, but also special knowledge relating to the manufacture of products, corporate and business strategies, customer lists and much more. The scope of application of the still rather young Trade Secrets Protection Act (GeschGehG) is immensely broad and represents the best opportunity, especially for innovative companies that have a lot of know-how but few IP rights, to secure their own knowledge advantage.

We support you in designing and setting up customised protection concepts to effectively protect your business and trade secrets against external access.
