Confidential information is a vital asset for any business. Therefore, it is important that such an asset is protected. Examples of confidential information often relate to key business assets such as intellectual property, business investments, directors and agents of the business to name but a few.
In certain situations, it is sufficient to use a standard type agreement that, if drafted properly, will work to protect your confidential information. However, there may be circumstances where a tailored agreement is required. This is often the case during high value transactions.
