Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.  

Employees Taking Company Property: Apple Employee Arrested for Stealing Company Secrets - for more information on employment law please click here.

US authorities have charged a former Apple employee with trade secret theft relating to Apple's self-driving vehicle blueprint.  The employee allegedly planned to work for a Chinese self-driving car startup and booked a last minute flight out of the country after downloading the blueprint.

Of course, the losses from such a theft can be huge.  We have conducted several cases for clients who have had trade secrets and company property stolen by employees who try to set up in competition with their employer or who want to ingratiate themselves with a new competing company employer.

We provide clients with employee contracts that will protect them from this activity by granting an indemnity from the employee in favour of the client for all losses whatsoever and payment of legal fees that result from their theft.

 Liability limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation.
