Litigation Between Competitors
Five employees left a leader in the construction industry and set up a competing business. Our client suspected that its former employees had misappropriated highly sensitive and confidential electronic data. Working closely with a computer forensic expert, Ball Janik LLP determined that the five former employees used our client’s sensitive and confidential information in competing for business. Ball Janik filed suit and took extensive discovery. Following discovery, Ball Janik obtained a stipulated permanent injunction against the former employees, thus putting an end to the wrongful competition by the former employees.
