About

Confidential information about your business, technologies, products and services can be a highly valuable business asset.

Keeping information confidential can be essential to maintain an edge over your competitors and to preserve the right to seek patent protection for inventions, methods, processes or concepts.

There may be circumstances where it is desirable for you to share confidential information, including if you want to collaborate with others to develop, manufacture or distribute your products, or if you want to discuss your business, products or services with prospective commercial partners or investors.

Confidentiality Agreements (or Non-Disclosure Agreements) are an effective way to protect your confidential information against unauthorised access, use or disclosure and to clearly define the purposes for which your confidential information may be used. They can cover a broad range of information and materials, including sensitive business, product and technical information. 

Shelston IP Lawyers are experts in drafting and advising on Confidentiality Agreements.

Before disclosing any confidential information to anyone, consider contacting Shelston IP Lawyers so we can make sure you have a suitable Confidentiality Agreement in place to protect your confidential information and preserve its value while still allowing for limited access and use as needed to suit your specific requirements.
