Rupert Butler in High Court case involving possible employee fraud and breach of contract

30 July 2012

Rupert Butler appeared in the High Court on 27th July and 10th August, representing Premier Model Management Ltd in a claim made against a former employee involving serious fraud and breach of contract. It is alleged that the employee tried to gain an unfair competitive advantage for a new model management venture set up by himself and his business partner while he was still an employee at Premier Models and that he passed on confidential and copyright material.

A successful application for disclosure was made against the former employee to disclose all confidential information or property in his possession that belonged to his former employer.
