Misappropriation of Trade Secrets

Summary:  Our client wsa a Bay Area business whose pricing and customer identity information was highly confidential.  After a key salesperson left to work for a competitor, our client discovered that its former employee had transmitted key trade secret and confidential information to his home computer and had also communicated with a company client to “wait” to place an order until he joined the competing business.  We secure a temporary restraining order against the employee and engaged in significant expedited discovery prior to the hearing on our motion for a preliminary injunction.

Result:  The case was settled early in the litigation on favorable terms.

Attorney:  Jamie L. Dupree
