Synthes Takes on 3 Former Sales Reps, Stryker in Loyalties Case Featured

Synthes, a Swiss spine device company currently in the middle of being acquired by Johnson & Johnson, recently filed suit against three former sales representatives and Stryker for breaching company loyalty, according to aPhiladelphia Inquirer news report.

According to the suit, Synthes alleges that the three sales representatives resigned from Synthes and shortly thereafter were hired by Stryker to sell the company’s spine-related products. Synthes alleges that the newly hired Stryker representatives “began soliciting and assisting” San Francisco area clients with whom they formerly worked as Synthes representatives.

The suit also alleges that one representative used Synthes devices to complete a surgery on behalf of Stryker without Synthes knowing, according to the report. Neither Stryker nor the sales representatives commented for the story.
