In 2020, Karl Gwaltney and Ed Maginnis successfully defended an employee sued for violating a non-compete agreement and non-solicitation agreement. These allegations started when the employee left his employment with a large electrical company to start his own company.
The employer initially sued to enforce the terms of the non-compete and non-solicitation agreements and collect monetary damages. Our client retained Maginnis Howard after parting with their initial counsel. After months of litigation, our attorneys were able to negotiate and secure a settlement where the client paid nothing and was able to keep operating his business.
