Business Ethics Expert for Misappropriation of Trade Secrets

Case Description:

A business ethics expert with senior management experience was needed for a counterclaim arising from a misappropriation of trade secrets case. The defendants, former employees of the plaintiff, left to start their own company. The new company was a service provider offering an agribusiness program that included a product from the former employer. The employer sued, claiming misappropriation of trade secrets and other charges, then pursued a publicity campaign against the defendants. The defendants counterclaimed that the plaintiff was being anti competitive, using unfair business practices, interfering with their business, and engaging in unethical corporate behavior.
