Enforced an employee contract requiring former employee to pay fees derived from clients the former employee took with him.

Issue: Non-solicitation | Employment Agreement

Court: Wayne County Circuit Court (Michigan)

Industry: Legal Services

Judge: Judge Sullivan

Case Description

My client’s former employee had signed a contract that prohibited the employee from taking clients with him — unless the employee paid fees for the clients he took.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees were in dispute.
It was a cut-and-dry employment agreement, but a surprising amount of people flagrantly violate such contracts, believing it a worthwhile risk. Along these lines, the particular former employee flatly refused to pay fees owed on his contract, I sued on behalf of my client to enforce the contract.
The parties satisfactorily resolved the dispute shortly thereafter.
