With the downturn of the economy, companies are grasping for market shares. Unfortunately, this can sometimes put these companies in a position that they would not normally want to be in. Businesses may try to take their competitors’ people so that their customers will follow.
While this is perfectly legal, there are often trade secrets that go along with certain people. When trade secrets are revealed, there is a breach of contract and the law. Recently, there has been a spike in the number of lawsuits involving sales people and this particular subject.
The economy can make business a more dangerous place. If you have been affected by trade secret violations, contact the business lawyers of Foley & Mansfield at 612-338-8788.
