Commercial Litigation


The Kenny Law Firm has successfully defended clients including attorneys and other professionals in lawsuits arising out of allegations of breach of fiduciary duties, non-compete agreements, violations of the Illinois Trade Secrets Act, and the Federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.  The key to the defense of these lawsuits is a strong tenacious defense that attacks the allegations at the heart by establishing the innuendo and conjecture are not the same thing as evidence needed to prove the very serious allegations.

One such case filed in the Northern District of Illinois involved allegations by a Fortune 500 Company against one of its former Sales Managers who allegedly orchestrated a “corporate raid.”  Allegedly the Sales Manager raided confidential information, employees, customers and trade secrets.  The employer also alleged that the former employee absconded with data storage and “SIM cards” from the Company-issued Blackberry phones.  Although the allegations against the Sales Manager proved frivolous, a strong defense was necessary.

Another such case was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County Illinois.  It involved a former law firm “partner” who allegedly breached his fiduciary duties when he allegedly interfered with business opportunities of his former employer by enticing former clients to his new law firm.  Once again the lawsuit proved frivolous after waging a strong defense to the allegations in the complaint.

On the other hand, an employer that wages a war against an employee to avoid paying severance and other benefits can be costly.  One such case was prosecuted by the Kenny Law Firm that involved breach of employment contract, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  The result against the former employer who set up a pretext for termination Cook County Jury Verdict in excess of $3 million.
