Making sure about breaches to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)
Sometimes we suspect that there may be one or more breaches to the signed Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), but are limited to a doubt that is not easily clarified. If that be the case, if the breach is not very clear, you should consult a lawyer in order to clarify any doubts you may have regarding any possible breaching acts within the framework of the non-disclosure agreement. Better than anyone else, a lawyer can answer any questions you may have about the exact scope of the rules laid down with your partners in the project.
In addition to this, you should also collect all the documentation and other evidence as grounds for your suspicions. It is advisable that you do so immediately without anyone knowing because there is a real danger of the evidence being destroyed.
It is also best that you estimate the real consequences or even possible damages that may have already been caused by the breach to the non-disclosure agreement, by gathering all the evidence in this sense, in which case it is important to realize the real extent of the damage or breach as regards, for instance, whom the confidential information was disclosed to, which documents or information were inappropriately shared, etc.
