NEW YORK, June 8—Cohn & Wolfe has settled its legal dispute with four former executives of its Atlanta office who left earlier this year to launch their own firm.
Under the terms of the agreement the new firm, The Titan Network, will be prevented from soliciting current and former clients of Cohn & Wolfe’s Atlanta office and from soliciting any employee who worked at Cohn & Wolfe’s Atlanta office at the time of their departure. Titan is also prevented from using or disclosing confidential information belonging to C&W.
Titan president Tony DiMartino said that in signing the agreement his firm had “agreed not to do things we never intended to do.” Cohn & Wolfe had sued the breakaway group for “unfair competition, misappropriation of trade secrets and other confidential information.”
According to C&W president Steve Aiello, the agency “is pleased to achieve a final resolution of this matter which protects the company's customer base and employees from unauthorized solicitations.”
