There are certain things that you don’t want to see in the public domain. We can help ensure that they stay in safe hands.
We can draft a non disclosure (or secrecy) agreement to suit all needs. These documents are a must before talking to investors, potential partners, designers, licensees, manufacturers or anyone with whom you share an idea with.
Non-disclosure agreements are crucial, yes. But they’re just the start. We can also help you get up to speed on the Privacy Act and Official Information Act as well as draft privacy statements and information sharing provisions in a variety of business agreements.
Do you have employees? If so, you need to ensure that they keep your secrets. We can tidy up your employment agreements to protect your clever stuff from exiting or dishonest employees and contractors.
Making sure they’d dotted the I’s and crossed the T’s, these clients relied on us to fine tune the details.
