Owner of catering company files theft of trade secrets claim

A company's trade secrets can come in a variety of forms and fashions and protecting this information could prove essential to safeguarding the future of the business. Business owners in Florida who feel that another party has stolen sensitive information may wish to know more about the steps to take to protect their interests. The owner of a catering company in another state has recently filed a lawsuit accusing a former employee of theft of trade secrets.

The owner of Ann'Z Gourmet Catering claims that one of her former employees accessed company social media accounts to steal sensitive trade secrets. The woman says this information included client contact details and a history of business transactions . She asserts that the other party used this information to help build her own catering company, Nosh Catering and Events LLC.

The owner of Ann'Z asserts that the incident has disrupted her business and caused it to experience substantial financial loss. However, the owner of Nosh reportedly denies any wrongdoing and asserts that the woman issued the allegations in an attempt to tarnish her reputation. She has reportedly filed a counterclaim accusing the owner of Ann'Z of defamation.

Theft of trade secrets is a major concern for many business owners and the outcome of a dispute over similar matters could have a significant impact on a company's future. Upon encountering such disputes, a person in Florida could find it beneficial to consult with an attorney for guidance on his or her available legal avenues. An attorney can examine the circumstances a client is facing and assist in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable concerning the future of his or her company.
