Szaferman Lakind prevailed on an appeal to the Supreme Court of New Jersey seeking to reverse a judgment against a Monmouth County accountant charged with violating a non-solicitation agreement. Our client had been employed by a larger firm and subject to a non-solicitation agreement. When our client became dissatisfied with the quality of services rendered by the firm, he left to open his own practice. In conjunction with that effort, he sent notices of the establishment of his practice to clients whom he serviced at the larger company. The larger accounting firm instituted an action for damages and prevailed in the trial Court, recovering a $71,000 judgment. We were retained to handle the matter on appeal to the Appellate Division and eventually the Supreme Court. In May 2007, the Supreme Court vacated the Judgment in part, reducing the award by $21,000.
