Unfaithful members and employees

They can spread confidential information and harm your business.
Here is what you need to do to defend yourself against unfaithful associates and employees.


From industrial espionage to improper use of names and trademarks belonging to other subjects and/or slavish imitation of other companies’ products carried out just with the aim of generating confusion and uncertainty in consumers. And not only that: in our thirty years of activity, we also worked on cases in which there was a spread of fake news about a competing company to discredit its reputation and cases of infidelity of employees and collaborators.

Unfair competition can take place in many forms, and it is not easy for companies to protect themselves from hidden and underhanded attacks. And especially because very often they are carried out by internal staff members, such as unfaithful partners and employees. We at Group Top Secret, thanks to a team of highly qualified and exclusively internal staff, can help your company intervening promptly by suggesting the most correct actions in order to eliminate unfair competition behaviour and defend your company against future attacks.

To harm competing companies, one of the most used methods is dumping or the practice of introducing products or services at a price much lower than the market price. Our investigations allow you to prove the occurrence of dumping.


Competitors can use your employees and/or collaborators to access confidential and sensitive information about your company and your future plans. Finding out people leaking this information is really very important…


Unfortunately, you can only get to know fake news about your company when these have already been artfully disseminated. Find out how to act in order to limit the damage, deny falsehoods and track down who deliberately leaked them…

Precise, professional, serious and discreet, better than my best expectations. In a short time they made my suspicions clear. Well done!

  • Economic losses

  • Reputation and image damage to your company

Unfair competition: what the Civil Code says

According to Article 2598 of the Civil Code, the concept of unfair competition includes:

  • acts capable of creating confusion with the products or activities of competitors. I.e. acts by which one tries to make believe that one’s product comes from a competing company of greater prestige, by imitating the distinctive signs of others (company , sign and brand) or, more often, imitating the shape of the product, its packaging or its labelling;
  • acts denigrating the products of other companies or aimed at appropriating qualities that instead belong to the products or companies of others. These are acts with which news and appreciations are spread that discredit competitors’ products and activities, for example by resorting to so-called comparative advertising with which the qualities of one’s own product are enhanced by criticizing those of the competing product;

Any other act contrary to professional correctness. This category includes, for example, industrial espionage and the so-called transfer of employees, that is, the action aimed at stealing the most valid employees or those most informed about company secrets from the competitor.

There is more: art. 2600 of the Italian civil code also states that: “If the acts of unfair competition are committed with intent or negligence, the author is required to pay damages”.

This means that the responsibilities borne by unfaithful members and employees are configured both for wilful misconduct and for negligence. Our job is to prove them.
