Gibson, Dunn, & Crutcher, a global law firm that ranks #15 on ALM’s Global 200 list, has been called to back reinsurance broker Guy Carpenter & Co. in two recently filed lawsuits over the defection of its CG Access unit to Howden Reinsurance Brokers. The two suits were brought in Texas and in New York.

In the Southern District of New York, Guy Carpenter has sued five former employees of its GC Access unit for breach of contract and fiduciary duties, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition and tortious interference with business relationships. The suit, backed by Gibson Dunn, centers on the employees’ defection to Howden Reinsurance Brokers in alleged breach of various non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements.
