Confidential information can be one of an organisation’s greatest assets' but also among its greatest risks. With our renowned technical know-how and recognised legal expertise, our work in this complex area spans across a range of industries including software, financial services and chemical engineering. Our experience in this area includes both high court litigation, and alternative dispute resolution, involving arbitration and mediation.
Among the most powerful procedural tools in establishing a breach of confidence are Search and Seizure orders (previously known as Anton Piller orders), an area where we have in-depth experience. A number of our partners are qualified to act as Supervising Solicitors, actively overseeing the process during the execution of such orders and reporting to the court. This gives us an invaluable insight and expertise into the use of such procedures.
