Offit Kurman Launches Employee Mobility and Trade Secret Protection Practice Group

For Immediate Release 

Philadelphia, PA | January 28, 2019 In today’s employment landscape, companies in competitive industries face tougher challenges than ever before. Competition over talent, customer relationships and proprietary technology has given workers greater mobility and incentive to move from job to job. Professionals are increasingly working remotely, sometimes across state and national borders. Employees, contractors, vendors, and customers are accessing more and more information in the cloud.

Altogether, these factors add up to amplified vulnerability for data breaches, theft, and exposure of valuable trade secrets, and poaching of vital customers through aggressive hiring by competitors.

To help businesses balance their needs for information security, minimized legal liability, and easy transitions for incoming and outgoing workers, Offit Kurman has developed an innovative legal service. The firm’s new Employee Mobility Team combines employment, commercial litigation, and intellectual property lawyers from across Offit Kurman’s geographic footprint. This hybrid team provides auditing services focused on the identification and protection of trade secrets, pre-litigation counseling on restrictive covenants and confidentiality agreements, enforcement of employment agreements, defense of restrictive covenant claims, the litigation of the complex business tort and intellectual property claims that often accompany employee mobility litigation.


"Offit Kurman has a deep bench of attorneys experienced with the restrictive covenant and trade secret issues that commonly arise when employees leave one company for a competitor. From pre-litigation counseling and risk management, to initial case assessments, demand letters and, if necessary, enforcement and defense of this cases in litigation, our inter-disciplinary team is a great fit for companies of all sizes within the mid-Atlantic region and beyond,” said Offit Kurman Principal Attorney and Head of the Employee Mobility Practice Group, Zachary Glaser.
