Know-how and trade secrets
The protection of know-how essentially concerns innovative features that are preserved and, if necessary, exploited in secrecy.
Patent protection involves the publication of an invention, while the opposite principle applies to know-how, since disclosure renders the same protection impossible: its disclosure (even if unauthorised) and the resulting risks can be prevented and reduced by appropriate contractual and legal measures.

We have a differentiated procedure at Arbo that we apply to best meet the individual needs of the companies that turn to us to protect their know-how.
