Defended several companies and individuals named in counter-claim by consulting oil and gas engineer for $5 million in stock and $6 million in lost profits and supervised tactics of numerous defendants’ counsel. After motions to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction were granted and further dismissal motions, answers and counterclaims were filed, our side’s counterclaim sparked a settlement of a confidential amount roughly one-third of an initial offer we made a year earlier and about one-tenth of our side’s estimated defense costs through trial.
Prosecuted several injunction and damages cases against departed securities brokers for violation of customer non-solicit and trade secret violations. Obtained one-year injunction in one case and settled another by setting off damages against reciprocal recruiting claim by competing broker-dealer.
