Interesting NDA Posts

Usually overlooked by boilerplate lawyers: "catch-all" NDAs are inherently structured to inadvertently disclose trade secrets.

This is a real problem and the solution is not simple. Many companies do not fully understand what their trade secrets are. Even when there is a level of understanding the "reasonable steps" to protect the information are often missing. We look at carve outs from the Confidential Information definition where possible but the safest approach is to make sure you have a full understanding of your trade secrets and do not disclose unless there is no other option. Easier said than done of course! A good starting point is to invest in a comprehensive IP audit.
