Computer Sales Rep Defends Alleged Trade Secret Claim.

Federal Court Orders Arbitration.

We recently represented a computer hardware and software sales representative resolve a dispute with the former distributor he had served for several years.  The former distributor initially sued our client in federal court for alleged trade secret violations, but we successfully argued that the case should have been filed in private arbitration.  We also were successful in curbing the plaintiff’s appetite for extensive written and oral discovery in federal court, with the judge agreeing with our client that discovery should take place in the arbitration setting.  We also helped our client advance claims for unpaid commissions under the Illinois Sales Representative Act, defamation and other claims that helped our client gain significant leverage in the arbitration and, ultimately, helped to settle the matter favorably for our client.
