On behalf of its client, a national provider of audio-visual equipment for live business and entertainment events, Sugarman Rogers obtained preliminary injunctive relief enjoining a former employee of the client from working for a competitor.

Upon learning that the former employee intended to join a competitor, Sugarman Rogers attorneys Christine Netski and Ken Thayer filed suit on behalf of the client in the Superior Court’s Business Litigation Session and immediately moved for a preliminary injunction seeking to enforce the restrictive covenants contained in the parties’ employment agreement. After a hearing, the court granted the client’s request for injunctive relief in full. The court ruled that the non-compete agreement was reasonable, that the former employee’s employment with the competitor would violate his non-compete obligations, and that the client faced serious and irreparable harm in the absence of an injunction. As a result of the court’s ruling, the former employee is prohibited from working for the competitor and from soliciting or accepting business from the client’s customers for six months, and is also enjoined from using or disclosing the client’s confidential business information.
