LAW WEEK COLORADO
Fisher & Phillips announced Monday that one of the nation’s leading non-compete and trade secrets attorneys has relocated his practice to Denver. Michael Greco, a partner with the firm, was formerly located in its Philadelphia office.
Greco is a member of the Fisher & Phillips employee defection and trade secrets practice group. His law practice is focused on litigating claims and issues nationally that arise from the movement of employees between competing firms. Greco also counsels and assists corporate clients in developing and implementing local and national programs to protect their competitive assets against employee defection, and to minimize risks when hiring employees from competitors.
Greco has personally prosecuted and defended more than 400 employee defection and recruitment matters in a wide variety of industries. This includes injunction and damages actions in at least 35 different state and federal courts, in addition to dozens of arbitration cases.
Greco is eager to relocate to Colorado, both for personal and business reasons. “I am excited to be joining a fast-growing office in a vibrant city with a thriving business and legal community,” he said in a press release. “My national clients have enthusiastically endorsed this move, and my family can’t wait to experience Colorado’s outdoor lifestyle and the state’s renowned natural beauty.”
One of Greco’s clients, financial services giant, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc., is growing its recently opened Lone Tree campus from 1,500 to approximately 4,000 employees. Greco has represented Schwab nationally for more than ten years.
