A case handled by David E. Morrison and Meredith Kirshenbaum, attorneys in the firm's Litigation and Labor & Employment groups, is referenced in "5 Noncompete Rulings From 2019 Attorneys Should Know," published in the Dec. 13, 2019, edition of Law360.

Mr. Morrison and Ms. Kirshenbaum represented Weldcote, Inc. and its officers in Abrasic 90 Inc. v. Weldcote Metals Inc. et al., case number 1:18-cv-05376, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

Law360 noted that the case offered "a useful crash course on established principles." The judge in the case denied Abrasic's claim that a former executive stole trade secrets, pointing out Abrasic's failure to protect its secrets, have employees sign non-disclosure agreements, or restrict access to where data was kept.
