Theft of trade secrets charges vary greatly in details. Cases commonly include the alleged theft of:

  • Patient lists from clinics and veterinarian offices
  • Trade secrets from manufacturers and service companies
  • Client lists
  • Industrial and technological information and secrets

Have you been accused of stealing trade secrets from your employer, former employer or another organization? Contact the former federal prosecutors of Leventhal & Slaughter, LLC at 407-849-6161.

A conviction for theft of trade secrets requires both an economic loss for the victim and an effort on the part of the victim to protect the information. We are creative in strategizing legal defenses. In one case we successfully argued that the information taken from a former employer was not proprietary because it was also available at a county office.

In a recent case attorney Harrison "Butch" Slaughter represented a physician accused of stealing a client list. Mr. Slaughter successfully argued a motion to suppress. The State continued to prosecute under a different theory, but we again successfully argued for the suppression of all statements. The case was ultimately dismissed with prejudice.
