Salt Lake City Misappropriation of Trade Secrets/Employee Breach of Fiduciary Duty of Loyalty Attorney
Utah Business and Employment Law Firm
Some employees feel that they have a right to use their employers' resources to advance their own careers. In some cases, employees attempt to steal clients or proprietary information in order to gain employment with a competitor or to start their own businesses. Even if the employees think these actions may be morally wrong, they may mistakenly believe that their actions are not unlawful.
However, employees owe a fiduciary duty of loyalty to their employers, and they do not need to have signed a contract for this duty to exist. These cases can be challenging for the employer to pursue. Working with an experienced employment law and business litigation attorney can take the burden off of the business owner.

Misusing Company Information Is Unlawful
An employee cannot compete against a company while he or she is employed. This includes stealing clients or trade secrets to form a new business or sell to a competitor. We will work to prove that the employee committed wrongful acts with improper purpose while still employed.
Our firm can represent your business in any disputes or litigation resulting from a breach of fiduciary duty of loyalty by an employee, including:
- Misappropriation of trade secrets
- Violation of non-compete, non-solicitation or non-disclosure agreements
- Unfair competition
We can represent the business or the employee in these disputes. While we make every effort to resolve business and employment disputes without going to trial, our attorney will litigate aggressively for you, if necessary.
