Executive – Restrictive Covenant Claims

Successful defense of an executive against claims by his former employer, a multinational technology and consulting corporation, seeking to enforce a 12-month non-competition agreement following our client’s resignation to pursue a position with a competitor. After three weeks of intensive expedited discovery, and in the midst of an evidentiary hearing on a motion for a preliminary injunction, the parties were able to reach a confidential settlement that allowed the client to join his new employer within 40 days of the suit's filing.
