Confidential Information & Privacy

Axis Legal advises clients on matters involving trade secret disputes, whether it is defending or prosecuting claims for misappropriate of client lists, copyright, source code, website designs, marketing strategies and other confidential know-how.

We regularly assist clients to ensure that their employment or business agreements include protective measures for non-disclosure, define roles appropriately (including moral rights and employee IP creation) and advise on restrictive covenants.

Clients rely on our extensive experience to advise them on the use, disclosure, security or access to personal and/or confidential information collected during the course of business. This extends to all forms of data collection including online, via mobile phone opt ins, competitions and social network platforms.

We prepare privacy policies, check disclosure notices and advise clients on compliance with the Privacy Act and the National Privacy Principals (NPPs), including handling of complaints.
