Mike Greco is a partner in the Philadelphia office. He litigates and provides counseling nationwide to employers concerning legal claims and issues arising from the movement of employees between competitor firms.

These issues include: covenants not to compete, non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements, unfair competition, employee raiding, trade secrets, duty of loyalty, Computer Fraud & Abuse Act, Economic Espionage Act, and state trade secrets and unfair competition statutes.

Mike has prosecuted and defended more than 300 employee defection and recruitment matters, obtaining and defeating injunctive relief in at least 27 different state and federal courts, in addition to dozens of arbitration actions before the National Association of Securities Dealers.

His experience includes representation of clients in the securities brokerage, health information technology, medical practice, computer sales and distribution, commercial window washing, personnel placement, online retailing, insurance brokerage, insurance, publishing, direct response television, radio, institutional food services, and freight forwarding industries.

In addition to litigating, Mike assists corporate clients in developing and implementing coordinated local and/or national programs to protect their competitive assets against employee defection, and to minimize risks that when hiring employees from competitors.

His practical knowledge of how courts have treated various restrictive covenants enables Mike to help employers draft appropriately tailored restrictive covenants.
