Justin Welply recently won a bench trial enforcing a settlement and non-competition agreement between Archway Physician Recruitment and a competitor, after the competitor and former employee violated a past settlement agreement. The agreement barred the competitor from working with specific Archway clients. The suit was filed to enjoin the competitor from working with select Archway clients and to seek recovery in liquidated damages. The judge found for Archway on both claims, enjoining the defendants from working with Archway’s clients and enforcing and awarding liquidated damages as set forth in the original settlement agreement.
Justin drafted the original settlement agreement back in 2016 and was lead counsel in the enforcement action filed in 2018 that recently came to a resolution. We congratulate Justin and his client on this impressive victory.
