Loopstra Nixon lawyers obtained a complete win for their client, Precise Auto Parts Ltd., a small one-year old Toronto auto parts company.
In a judgment rendered by the Honourable Justice Morgan on July 19, 2021, Loopstra Nixon lawyers Christopher Lee and Wendy Ngai obtained a complete win for their client, Precise Auto Parts Ltd., a small one-year old Toronto auto parts company.
The Plaintiff, UAP Inc., sued against eight defendants. In this motion for injunctive relief, the Plaintiff, a subsidiary of a multi-billion dollar global auto parts company, sought to shut down Precise Auto’s sole business selling auto parts, alleging that it was competing with the Plaintiff’s business in contravention of non-compete obligations in an agreement Precise Auto never signed. The Court rejected all of the Plaintiff’s allegations, finding that Precise Auto was not a signatory to the non-competition agreement and that there was no conclusive evidence demonstrating a causal connection between Precise Auto’s business and the Plaintiff’s own loss of market share.
