From burgeoning high-tech companies to established international manufacturers, healthcare giants, and established financial services and insurance institutions, clients regularly turn to Greene Espel to represent them in disputes involving trade secrets.

Our lawyers have litigated, tried, and handled on appeal trade-secret-misappropriation cases in Minnesota and across the United States, often with tens or hundreds of millions of dollars at risk.  We take pride in working with in-house and outside experts to master complicated technical subjects and present those concepts to judges and juries in an understandable way. We also employ creative strategies to confront trade secret theft and secure the safe return of trade secrets while avoiding drawn-out litigation.
