Need Help With a Non-Disclosure Agreement or Confidentiality Agreement?

March 12, 2013

non-disclosure agreementMany situations warrant the need for a non-disclosure and/or confidentiality agreement. Such agreements are usually meant to protect sensitive or proprietary information and are necessary when starting new business relationships, hiring new employees, purchasing or selling a business, settling a claim, or other scenarios where private information is being exchanged.

If you have been asked to sign a non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement or would like to issue an agreement to another party, contact Marshall Socarras Grant, P.L. to speak with a Boca Raton business attorney. We can draft, revise, negotiate, enforce or defend a non-disclosure or confidentially agreement to ensure your best interest is protected.

 

 

Before an Agreement is Signed

Before you sign or issue any kind of contract, it is wise to have an attorney review the contract first to help you avoid unwanted consequences in the future. An attorney can ensure the contract includes all necessary provisions for your particular circumstance and that all terms are clearly defined and considered reasonable for your industry. For non-disclosures and confidentially agreements, this includes clearly stating the types of information that will be disclosed and the method for which the information will be disclosed. The agreement should also include limits on how long the agreement will be in effect and how the information can and cannot be used. Importantly, the agreement should also state how a breach of the agreement will be handled.

 

After a Non-Disclosure Agreement Has Been Breached

If you have a non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement with another party and that agreement has been broken, an attorney can help you take action to rectify the situation. If you have been accused of breaking such an agreement, an attorney can review your contract to determine whether you have actually broken the contract and whether the contract is valid and enforceable. If you are the issuer of the agreement and another party has broken that agreement, an attorney can help you determine what legal action should be taken to protect you and your business or to recoup any damages due to the breach of contract.
