WSJ: AlixPartners Wins First Round in McKinsey Suit

The Wall Street Journal reported that in the first round of its trade-secret suit against consulting firm McKinsey & Company, turnaround management firm AlixPartners prevailed as a Delaware Court issued a temporary restraining order against two former management directors.

According to the Journal, the judge ordered the pair to return to all hard copies of AlixPartners’ trade secrets and other confidential and proprietary information and to turn over their email accounts and electronic devices to a third party, which will perform a forensic examination to make sure any proprietary information gets deleted.

Additionally, Messrs. Eric Thompson and Ivo Naumann were ordered to refrain from “soliciting other AlixPartners employees in violation of existing restrictive covenants in their employment agreements”, the Journal said.
