Using LegalEase Solutions to make an informed decision as to when the assistance of outside counsel is required

CHALLENGE

A large Houston based drilling company, was recently confronted with a situation where three long-time senior-level executives had accepted offers of employment with a competitor drilling company. The company did not have an employment contract or a noncompete agreement with any of the three executives but did have a confidentiality agreement signed by the three employees. The General Counsel needed, within a short time span, information on what remedies were available, if any, against the departing executives, before deciding whether to engage outside counsel.

SOLUTION
