Non Compete issues often involve intellectual property theft and occur when former employees attempt to start a competing company in clear violation of non compete agreements
Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
McCann Investigations Houston division, a Texas-based private investigations firm announces integration of its investigation tools, combining digital forensics and traditional private investigations which is essential to facilitating complex investigations involving non compete violations at Houston companies. McCann Investigations has worked on hundreds of cases which help its Houston clients to enforce a non compete agreement.
Many companies have solid non compete agreements in place. Non compete violations occur when present for former employees (sometimes in collusion with one another) download or export proprietary company information such as engineering drawings, client lists or trade secrets. This is often done when those employees are seeking to create a competing company. Or it can be a simple case of a salesperson taking a client list or open proposals to a competitor.
“Our non compete enforcement cases are complex and involve multiple investigative techniques and research to gather evidence.” Says Daniel Weiss, Managing Partner of McCann Investigations. “From the company computer, we can often determine if proprietary data was downloaded, or if the suspected employee was in communication with competitors.” Continued Weiss.
McCann Investigations also works with intellectual property theft cases which is sometimes an important factor in non compete enforcement investigations. Through digital forensics, McCann investigators gather evidence to support theft of intellectual property.
