Successful verdict when client switches from plaintiff to defendant when former employee countersues
When a former employee of our client, a Fortune Top 50 worldwide company that manufactures continuous gas analyzers and gas chromatographs, went to work for a competitor and took trade secrets with him, we asked for an injunction on the proprietary information. Once we obtained the injunction, the former employee and his current employer filed a countersuit claiming tortious interference with contract. When mediation failed, we went to trial, which lasted over three weeks. We obtained a successful result for our client with regard to the counterclaims of both the individual and his subsequent employer.
