Contractual Agreement Not to Solicit Former Colleagues to Join a Competitor

Represented a partner in a dispute with a Big Four accounting firm, which alleged he had violated a contractual agreement not to solicit his former colleagues to join a competitor. The client asserted counterclaims for compensation. After a two-week arbitration heard by a three-arbitrator panel, the arbitrators entered an award in our client’s favor on these non-solicitation and compensation claims.
