Technology, know-how

KM Partners helps clients to choose the best options of their intellectual property rights protection.

Technologies, “know-how” are specific objects because of the complete or partial absence of their patent protection. On the one hand, this can be considered as disadvantage, but, on the other hand, this provides more confidentiality (within the absence of mandatory disclosure of information about the object of the patent protection) and avoidance of registration expenses. Under these conditions, it is extremely important to establish a complex of legal measures concerning the identification and keeping in confidentiality technologies and “know-how”.

Our lawyers pay special attention to protection of rights on these objects within the drafting of non-disclosure agreements and agreements of the protection of confidential information which can be applicable to employees of the company as well as to its partners connected with the joint usage of technology.
