Contractual Agreement Not to Solicit Former Colleagues to Join a Competitor

Representation of a partner in a dispute with his former partnership, a major U.S. 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.
