Intellectual Property Lawyers

Confidentiality agreement lawyers

From time to time, all organisations have to disclose information they would rather keep confidential. This information may be technical, financial, commercial or concern patentable information.

Before releasing confidential material to any third party, it is vital to ensure that you have a written confidentiality agreement (also known as a non disclosure agreement or NDA) covering how that party may use the material and to whom, if anyone, they may communicate it.

How can we help?

Our experienced confidentiality agreement lawyers can draft confidentiality agreements that will fully protect your business and your intellectual property rights.

Do I need a confidentiality agreement checked by a lawyer?

A confidentiality agreement or NDA is one of the most important legal documents for any business. Not all confidentiality agreements are the same, so someone else's standard agreement is very likely to favour them. Subsequently, seeking legal advice when entering into a confidentiality agreement is essential and can prove invaluable to help you protect your business interests.

Confidentiality agreement templates

We can provide you with a confidentiality agreement for use in a specific situation. Alternatively, we can provide you with a confidentiality agreement template for you to use as a standard document, as many times as you wish.

Legal action in the event of a confidentiality breach

If someone breaches your confidentiality agreement, we can also help you to take legal action and minimise the disruption caused.

Examples of our recent confidentiality agreement work includes:

  • Providing a market-leading design company with standard confidentiality agreements for use when proposing new designs to potential clients. Routinely advising the same design company on confidentiality agreements provided by its clients and potential clients.

  • Advising a technology company on its confidentiality arrangements with prototype manufacturers and developers, particularly in the period before patents are filed.

  • Advising a police force on confidentiality issues, and contractual arrangements with a television company, in connection with making a high profile television documentary.

For specialist advice on confidentiality agreements or taking legal action in the event of a confidentiality breach, please contact Doug Locke on 0117 314 5602.
