We successfully defended our client, an insurance brokerage firm, in a restrictive covenant suit against an employee who solicited former clients after leaving the company. In the action, a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction were granted in favor of our client and the defendant asserted counterclaims for unfair competition. In the decision issued by Justice Pines in Suffolk County, the court dismissed most of the counterclaims on the basis that all business was property of our client, the employer. Soon after the decision, the defendant opted to settle the case on terms favorable to our client rather than proceed with the litigation. Laurent Drogin, David Kleinmann and Lisa McIntyre, attorneys in the Restrictive Covenants Practice, represented our client in this matter.
