IP Evaluator Business Secret

Find out if trade secret is the right way to protect your company's valuable   information

Answer the questions of our IP EVALUATOR and find essential information to discover the trade secret and protect your company's information.

To establish timely protective measures for your company’s valuable information is linked to its future success.

Does your company collect valuable information for its future success?

Do you have valuable information for your business that may be a trade secret?*
In which information category would you include it?*
Once the information is used for your business, would it be subject to reverse engineering (i.e. could your competitor deduce its potential secret, for example, by studying a sample of the product containing it)?*
Beforehand, you should consider another protection mechanism to prevent others from using your information, for example, by means of a patent.
Do you need to know if this valuable information meets the essential requirements to be patentable? Send us your contact information, and a specialised consultant will analyse your case in depth to offer the most appropriate solution.
