Lexicon Communications Corp. is one of the world leaders in strategic public relations, corporate crisis management, crisis communications and issues management. We are one of the few firms uniquely qualified today to assist companies in all aspects of economic espionage -- from proactively protecting a company's trades secrets to reactively helping manage all aspects of a potential crisis if a company is victimized and trade secrets are compromised.
We were heavily involved in all key aspects of the first and largest case of economic espionage ever prosecuted under the new Economic Espionage Act -- from the initial suspicion of espionage to the FBI surveillance and sting operations to the ultimate criminal prosecution by the U.S. Justice Department and successful conviction against a sizable Taiwanese business, its founder and chairman, and other company officers. The corporate client we represented -- a Fortune 500 business competitor of the Taiwanese firm -- was a victim of economic espionage of staggering proportions for more than eight long years, and never suspected a thing. In that regard, our client was typical of many victims of economic espionage, since a trade secret is the one thing that can be stolen and the victim may never know it has been taken. From beginning to end, we assisted our client in managing and containing the crisis from escalating beyond all reasonable proportion, and we successfully handled the communications of the crisis to the client's vast and varied publics around the world, and on Wall Street.
Today we advise companies on the critical steps they need to take in order to:
- Identify and protect company trade secrets.
- Educate and train employees.
- Avoid being a victim of Economic Espionage.
- Avoid being investigated for committing Economic Espionage.
- Undertake necessary trade secret security reviews.
- Act swiftly and wisely if they become a victim of Economic Espionage.
