Wittliff Cutter partner Katherine Chiarello secured a favorable settlement on behalf of her client, a leading multinational electrical distributor with hundreds of branch locations in the USA, in a dispute against a former employee. Katherine obtained court permission to take five pre-lawsuit depositions, in which Wittliff Cutter established that the former employee had breached his contractual and fiduciary duties to his former employer by improperly soliciting other employees. Shortly after the lawsuit was filed, the new employer made a cash payment to Katherine’s client to compensate it for the damages caused by the departing employee.
