The firm served as lead counsel for BellSouth in a highly-publicized dispute involving Sprint’s hiring of the second highest-ranking corporate officer at BellSouth to serve as Sprint’s then-CEO. The case involved claims for breach of non-competition and nondisclosure agreements and “inevitable misuse” of trade secrets. We obtained an injunction in arbitration prohibiting the executive’s disclosure of confidential information to Sprint and limiting his executive activities at Sprint to prevent the misuse of BellSouth’s trade secrets. BellSouth Corp. v. Forsee, 265 Ga. App. 589, 595 S.E.2d 99 (2004).
