Commercial Litigation; Punitive Damages

David A. Axelrod & Associates successfully represented clients whose trade secret customer information had been stolen, initially obtaining an injunction preventing use of that information and, ultimately, winning at trial an award of compensatory damages for business loss as well as punitive damages.  After trial, while the court was to decide the amount of attorneys fees to be awarded, the case was settled in favor of the firm’s clients.
