Given a recent uptick in recruiting and trade secret cases, Mr. Hermann explained, brokers “need to be extra cautious as to the information that they’re pulling, anything that they’re keeping, because firms are keeping track. If there’s even the slightest bit of evidence that they were using this working from home to gather client information in anticipation of an employment move, firms will use this to their advantage.”
Brady Hermann is based in Maurice Wutscher’s Boston office and supports the firm’s litigation matters in its New York office, practicing in the firm’s Commercial Litigation and Consumer Credit Litigation groups.
