Prevention of theft of technology developer's intellectual property

We successfully acted on behalf of one of the leading worldwide developers of specialist marine radar technology to obtain ex parte injunctions against five defendants (including two of the client’s senior employees) to prevent the theft of the client’s intellectual property involving unauthorised use of specialist marine radar technology, diversion of business to a sham company and the patenting of their client’s inventions using false identities.

The sham company was closed down, the unlawfully filed patent applications transferred to the client, extensive commercially confidential documents delivered up and undertakings and significant monies by way of damages and costs were extracted from the defendants.
