Protecting Against Theft

Quarles & Brady represented an international industrial automation client in a matter against five former employees engaged in a conspiracy to steal confidential information and documents to start a competing business. Through extensive use of computer forensics to establish theft and investigation by local and federal authorizes, Quarles & Brady secured a quick and favorable settlement, restricting the former employees from engaging in certain competitive activities and requiring them to pay royalties on work already secured.
