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”.

Hub sues former staffing practice executive

Hub sues former staffing practice executive

Hub International Ltd. Thursday sued Clint Anderson, a former leader of its staffing industry practice, alleging he breached a nonsolicitation agreement when he joined a rival brokerage.

According to Hub International Midwest Ltd. v. Clinton W. Anderson and Artemis Risk Solutions LLC, filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, “multiple” Hub clients moved their business to Artemis after Mr. Anderson’s alleged “unlawful solicitations.”

Mr. Anderson joined Hub in 2016 as president, specialty practice, and was responsible for building the brokerage’s insurance and benefits business for companies in the staffing, professional employer organization, hospitality and health care sectors, the lawsuit states. Previously, he spent eight years at rival Assurance Holdings Inc.

When Mr. Anderson joined Hub, he signed a two-year nonsolicitation agreement and agreed to abide by its terms when his employment at Hub was terminated in May 2023, court documents say.

“In or about March 2024, HUB learned that Anderson had started a competitive business to HUB called Artemis,” the suit states. Mr. Anderson is listed as chief revenue officer of Dallas-based Artemis.

After starting Artemis, Mr. Anderson recruited a former Hub colleague and solicited Hub clients, the lawsuit alleges.

“As a result of Artemis’s intentional interference, HUB has suffered irreparable harm and other significant injuries,” the lawsuit states.

Hub seeks injunctions against Mr. Anderson and damages.

Hub declined to comment on the litigation.

An attorney for Artemis was not immediately available for comment.
