Solving Your Problems While Getting You Back to Business

Non-Competition Litigation

Print Page

A Connecticut-based manufacturer with international locations retained us when one of their chemists left to join a competitor in the wet-chemistry industry. Though the chemist had signed a non-competition agreement upon joining our client, he still took a position that violated its terms and threatened to reveal our client’s trade secrets. After expedited discovery including depositions took place, and we defeated a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, we tried an application for permanent injunction over two days, and prevailed. The Connecticut Superior Court judge ruled entirely in our client’s favor and permanently enjoined the former employee from working with the competitor for the period of the non-competition agreement.
