Barclays Bank “No-Poach” Antitrust Violations Investigation

Lieff Cabraser is investigating complaints that multinational British bank giant Barclays may have violated U.S. antitrust laws by promising not to hire employees from U.S. bank JPMorgan. The complaints arose in the wake of a series of high-level executive departures from JPMorgan to Barclays starting in 2015.

The U.S. Department of Justice is also reportedly looking into the situation, and has made document requests to Barclays to see if it made agreements with JPMorgan to avoid hiring additional JPMorgan bankers. Such “no-poach” agreements, as they are called, violate U.S. antitrust law.
