Obtaining TRO to Protect Business Information from Competitors

In a significant case involving an attempted large-scale raid on our client, a leader in the title insurance industry, we obtained a Temporary Restraining Order to prevent a former branch manager from taking copies of customer files and other confidential business information—along with nearly all of the employees of that particular branch office—to a competitor. The court’s order required our client’s former employees and their new employer to return all of the items that had been taken from our client. In addition, the restraining order not only prevented the use of those files and other confidential information, but prevented the former employees and our client’s competitor from contacting or soliciting business from our client’s customers.
