Confidentiality-Crisis

 

Case Study

Two senior directors were sent by our client, a major manufacturer, to meet suppliers in the Far East. On their return the directors explained that the trip had not been productive. Soon afterwards, they both resigned. Our client was suspicious.

Working with our team of investigators, we quickly discovered that premises had been acquired, that the directors had set up in competition, and that they had entered into an exclusive distributorship agreement with the Far East suppliers.

It also became clear that the two directors had taken our client’s customer database, and had planned an aggressive sales campaign based on spreading untrue rumours about our client’s products.

Our team moved quickly to obtain an injunction preventing the two former directors from running the new business for a defined period and requiring the return of the confidential information.

The former directors’ attempts to malign our client’s reputation were thwarted.
