This case involves an attorney who left his firm after 18 years following a compensation dispute. Upon leaving, the attorney allegedly began poaching clients and employees away from his former firm. The firm filed suit against the ex-employee for these deceptive practices. The defendant attorney then counter-sued his former employer for racial discrimination, claiming that he was unjustly passed up for promotions and compensation increases. An expert was sought to discuss the ethics of an attorney poaching their former practice’s clients and associates.
