Firm Obtains Temporary Restraining Order in an Insurance Broker Raiding Case

The Firm represented Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance Company (“BHSI”) in a lawsuit against QBE Insurance Company (d/b/a QBE North America) and certain of BHSI’s former insurance brokers and employees, who resigned from BHSI in a coordinated fashion in April 2022 and commenced work almost immediately with QBE. On May 5, 2022, the Firm obtained a temporary restraining order against defendants in the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, Index No. 652049/2022 (Borrok, J.). Thereafter, defendants removed the case to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Case No. 1:22-cv-03798 (Caproni, J.), where it thereafter settled on confidential terms, and was dismissed pursuant to a Stipulation and Consent Order entered July 26, 2022.
