Executive Placement Firm

O’Melveny represented an executive search firm in its cooperation with federal prosecutors pursuing criminal charges against a former senior executive for misappropriation of trade secrets. We helped the company respond to government requests, oppose overly broad subpoena requests, and ensure that the company’s trade secret and confidential, proprietary information remain protected during a two-week criminal trial, which resulted in a jury verdict finding the former executive guilty of six felony counts.
