Courts will uphold all agreements between parties provided they are validly made, even confidentiality agreements. So first you must ensure that the confidentiality agreement is a valid agreement. Once you have assured yourself of that, you need to look at what sort of "breach" you might want to claim if you are considering going to Court. The issue, in the event that you do go to Court, will be - what are the remedies that the Court will provide in order to remedy the "breach". Will the Court provide for "damages" or issue some sort of "injuncutory relief" or other sort of order that the breaching party will need to fulfill.
