Draftfcb, Digitas Squash Beef

Just over month after Draftfcb brought on legal action against Digitas for alleged recruiting violations regarding two former employees, the parties have decided to lay down their arms. Here’s a quick statement from the agencies below:

“Both Draftfcb and Digitas have a tremendous amount of respect for each other, and our recent legal dispute was unfortunate. As a result of the agreements made between the parties, legal actions have been dropped. Digitas will continue to ensure that the non-solicitation obligations of its employees are strictly enforced. Both agencies are fully committed to reinforcing Chicago as a great marketing and advertising community, sometimes in competition, and sometimes in cooperation with one another.”

The agencies will not comment further on the matter, but we guess it’s nice that the Windy City operations decided to make nice.
