Intellectual Property Litigation Attorney in San Diego

Representing Businesses Facing IP Litigation in California

At The McClellan Law Firm, we are committed to representing businesses that have been harmed due to the illegal acts of other businesses, especially those that have experienced intellectual property (IP) losses. While we focus our efforts on helping companies within the bio-tech, life sciences and technology industries, our San Diego lawyers are skilled at identifying potential intellectual property claims for businesses in all industries.

Misappropriating Trade Secrets

Trade secrets, due to their very nature, can be very difficult to protect.

Companies with trade secrets have opted to keep their patentable item secret instead of registering it as a patent. A good example of this would be the Coca-Cola® formula. These secrets are often coveted by other businesses that will stop at nothing to obtain the trade secret and use it as their own.

If you believe your trade secret has been misappropriated or stolen by another company or someone within your own business, it is important to seek the immediate assistance of an experienced intellectual property attorney. We are familiar with the California Uniform Trade Secrets Act, which governs requirements, remedies and other aspects relating to trade secrets. We will conduct a thorough investigation to determine potential remedies.

  • “We could not be happier with the McCllelan Law Firm team! My husband and I were referred to Craig McCllelan by one of his peers. We had a very sensitive medical malpractice case that we were hesitant to even pursue. Craig and his team sat down and walked us through the entire process giving us their honest opinion and options. We felt very comfortable with the process and completely relieved by the end of the first meeting, so we decided to proceed. It is three years later and we couldn't be happier that we did. Craig, Connor, and his team made the entire experience so easy and smooth. They were always available no matter how small our question or concern. I swear they work 24/7! And most importantly, we knew that they truly cared about us and the outcome. They fought for our family and have given us the piece of mind that our son's healthcare will always be covered. It is truly the greatest gift and we will forever be in their debt!”
