Saatchi Camps Do Battle in Court

Saatchi & Saatchi is seeking an injunction against its founder and three top executives who quit to set up a rival firm. They are accused of conspiring to damage its business.

Mr Saatchi, Jeremy Sinclair, the former deputy chairman, and the ex-heads of the Saatchi & Saatchi Agency Worldwide, Bill Muirhead and David Kershaw, were not in court.

A Saatchi & Saatchi spokesman said fresh writs were served yesterday seeking to widen the terms of the injunction in a bid to stop the team from poaching staff under any circumstances.
