Defended Corporate Executive Against Claims Of Wrongful Termination

Successfully defended high-level executive of multinational corporation from claims of detrimental reliance and wrongful termination based on personal relationship with former employee. Although the executive had no part in the former employee’s termination, the employee engaged in a pattern of harassing conduct via social media after their personal relationship ended, ultimately retaining counsel to issue a demand seeking damages from the executive. We swiftly issued a cease and desist letter based on the harassing conduct, and demanded that all evidence of the harassment be preserved. Opposing counsel repeatedly threatened litigation to solicit a settlement offer from our affluent client, but we firmly maintained that any such action would be frivolous and would be met with relevant counterclaims. No settlement was ever discussed and no lawsuit was filed by the employee.
