Preparing for Trade Secrets Litigation in Thailand

Informed Counsel

In typical trade secrets cases, the alleged infringer will be a new employee, a former employee, or a third party whom the owner of the trade secret worked with (e.g., consultants, vendors, visitors to the factory, universities, outside inventors, or even governments). Since the two parties know each other, the conflict usually becomes more personal and it can lead to some difficulties when litigation occurs, especially when parties begin to personalize their grievances. Thus, the approach in trade secret litigation should be carefully reviewed, especially if the alleged misappropriator is still an employee or the relationship is ongoing. Careful preparation is critical to ensuring the best outcome possible.
