  • competitive acts by current employees
  • breach of fiduciary duty by corporate officers and directors
  • misappropriation of employer's trade secrets by current or former employees
  • misappropriation of other employer property
  • breach of covenant not to compete
  • soliciting and hiring other employees
  • soliciting a former employer's customers
