Protection of know-how and secrecy

Our attorneys in Stuttgart and Karlsruhe are specialists in secrecy law

Know-how, customer data and other business secrets

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

This involves not only technical know-how worthy of protection, 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 fairly new German 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 building customized protection concepts to effectively protect your business and trade secrets against external access.
