Confidentiality agreement solicitors

When obtaining a Confidentiality Agreement otherwise known as a Non Disclosure Agreement, it is important to speak with a solicitor. A standard Non Disclosure Agreement that can be downloaded as a template is unlikely to be comprehensive enough or fit your specific requirements.

Non Disclosure Agreements typically allow you to disclose information to a third party, such as customers, suppliers or persons you may be considering entering into some kind of venture with. The information is normally provided for a specific purpose and by signing the agreement the third party confirm that they will not pass this information to anyone else or use it other than for the specified purpose.

Drafting agreements

Our specialist solicitors have experience of drafting one way non disclosure agreements where you may be the only business sharing information and the recipient agrees not to leak this information in the public domain or use it contrary to what is specified. Additionally, we can produce two way Non Disclosure Agreements where both parties are sharing information with each other and want to ensure that neither of them will share this information with anyone else.

The types of valuable information that confidentiality or non disclosure agreements tend to cover may include any of the following:

  • Industry trade knowledge (secrets)
  • Technical designs and drawings
  • Formulas
  • Sales and marketing information
  • Customer and prospect data

Our expert solicitors can also assist with drafting specific types of confidentiality agreements required during company mergers, acquisitions and disposals.

A well drafted agreement should allow companies to cooperate with each other for mutual gain.
