What Are Trade Secrets in Louisiana? 

The concept of a trade secret is much broader than someone copying a patented product or using a trademark.

Under Louisiana law, the term “trade secret" includes:

  • Information, including a pattern, formula, compilation, program, method, device, technique, or process, that:
    • Has potential or actual economic value because it is not easily known or ascertained by others who can profit from its use or disclosure; and 
    • Is the subject of reasonable efforts to maintain secrecy, under the circumstances. 

Have you ever heard someone say “they stole my idea”? Your idea could be a trade secret which you thought was confidential until one party told another company, who then used it to make a competing product. Inventors and innovators are at the mercy of big business in bringing a product to market. It is imperative you protect your trade secret. 

Unfair Competition & Trade Secret Misappropriation Can Take Many Forms

Many people think that trade secret litigation is only focused on intellectual property. However, there are many ways an individual or business can suffer significant financial harm due to someone misappropriating their “trade secrets” such as proprietary processes and/or procedures. Very often,  Inventors and small businesses have to divulge their “trade secrets” to big business in order to bring their product to market. We are ready to assist and to level the playing field and/or to litigate against the respective big business to litigate against any entity that gained a competitive advantage through the theft of your “trade secret”.

For instance, an investor seeking to purchase a commercial entity or an oil field may have a unique plan to accomplish the transaction. Would it be fair for a banker to use the investor’s plan for his or her own personal gain in buying the oil field? Similarly, an inventor with an idea may align with a manufacturing and distribution company to place a product on the market. If the manufacturer decides to place its own label on the inventor’s product, the loss of profits and access to the marketplace can be devastating.
