Law360: Activision Latest To Accuse Netflix Of Executive PoachingDecember 04, 2020
O’Melveny is advising Activision Blizzard in its employee-poaching suit against Netflix, Law360 reported. The complaint states Netflix “unapologetically recruits talent without regard to its ethical and legal obligations” and has most recently induced Activision CFO Spencer Neumann to break his employment agreement.
The article also noted that O’Melveny is representing Fox in a similar suit against Netflix. Last December, a California state judge ordered Netflix to stop poaching Fox executives who have signed fixed-term employment contracts, according to the publication.
The O’Melveny team representing Activision includes partners Daniel Petrocelli, Molly Lens, and Eric Amdursky.
