BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Aon PLC and Alliant Insurance Services Inc. last week settled a poaching dispute stemming from Alliant’s recruitment of a group of Aon construction brokers in 2019.
Terms of the settlement are confidential, court documents say. Aon declined to comment on the settlement. Alliant did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Last November, Aon won a temporary restraining order in the case Aon Risk Services Cos. Inc., Aon PLC and Aon Group Inc. v. Alliant Insurance Services Inc., Tara Brusek, James Janic, Thomas Lubas, Danielle Ross, Jamie Taylor, Joshua Vick and Matthew Walsh barring Newport Beach, California-based Alliant from soliciting its clients.
Aon had alleged that the group, which resigned to join Alliant in October 2019, had breached restrictive covenants in their employment contracts by among other things copying company files before they left Aon as part of a scheme to “decimate” Aon’s construction business.
Alliant Insurance Services Inc. said Monday it will “vigorously defend” a suit filed by rival Aon PLC last week accusing Alliant and a group of former Aon construction brokers of targeting Aon clients in breach of nonsolicitation agreements.
