Phoenix Non Disclosure Agreement Basics
A non-disclosure agreement (also known as a confidentiality agreement) protects the confidentiality of business as well as the professional information exchanged between parties. In an employment contract context, a non-disclosure agreement helps maintain the confidentiality of trade secrets or any private policy of the employer. If a company fails to adequately protect their trade secrets, then the trade secrets can be revealed without recourse. The restrictions contained in non disclosure agreements must be reasonable or a court can find it unenforceable and not legal.
Once you contact our law firm, our attorneys can assist employees and clients in Phoenix, AZ with fighting an unreasonable non-disclosure or negotiating with the employer to reach a settlement over the rights of the non-disclosure clause. Arizona law does, in practice, allow the enforcement of non-disclosure agreements; and here are some common areas where a non disclosure agreement is used:
- The exchange of information when evaluating the purchase of a business.
- Once an employment agreement is terminated and the employer wishes to keep trade secrets confidential.
- Potential prototypes with anticipated manufacturing needs.
- Unique business processes that the employer considers a trade secret.
- Business plans including new ideas.
Non-Disclosure Lawyer Assistance
We can review an employment contract prior to execution. We can help in determining whether it meets our client’s needs and protects their ability to continue in their profession should the agreement be terminated. Our firm offers defense of claims that employees are in violation of the non-disclosure agreement or non-solicitation agreement contained in a new or existing employment contract. Many non-disclosure agreements reach far beyond the protection of a business’ legitimate business interests. Legitimate business interests will include client/patient lists, practice policy, contact procedures, intellectual property rights and trade secrets.
