Business Disruption Disputes

RLG’s business disruption practice focuses on trade secrets, computer fraud, employee mobility and restraining orders involving confidentiality, non-compete and non-solicit clauses as well as privacy policies and stolen computer data. RLG prides itself on being the law firm of choice when our clients need to quickly mobilize a prosecution or a defense of high-stakes, fast-paced disputes involving cease and desist demands, restraining orders and preliminary injunctions. We have obtained immediate results ranging from the prompt return of stolen trade secrets, forcing competitors to cancel client seminars and webinars and forcing competitors to cease and desist from disruptive client and employee solicitations. We have also obtained emergency relief such as restraining orders, injunctions and writs of attachment in a variety of cases.
RLG litigates high stakes business disruption cases involving non-compete, non-solicit and trade secret cases. We represent executives, professionals, financial advisors, insurance agents, sales executives and other high-level employees who are switching companies or who have started their own businesses. We represent companies whose employees have joined competing businesses or established new competing businesses. We represent companies accused of “raiding” competing companies for desirable qualified employees or professionals.

These disputes routinely turn on:

  • Restrictive covenants such as non-compete, non-solicit and confidentiality agreements between the parties
  • The parties’ conduct immediately before and immediately after the departures
  • The laws, regulations and industry practices governing the parties and their businesses

We are often called upon to pursue or defend against a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction aimed at stopping the adversaries’ conduct. RLG is adept at responding quickly in these fast-moving situations.
