In Texas, Exclusive Means Exclusive

June 20, 2013

(June 11, 2013), the Fifth Circuit affirmed that Marvin (Geotest) breached an "exclusive" teaming agreement with X Tech, a small business, by submitting a separate, ultimately successful competing bid teamed with another company when X Tech had committed in the agreement to bid Geotest as its subcontractor and Geotest had agreed not to "team up with any other company." This decision underscores the points made in our recent blog and bullet point that a teaming agreement will be enforceable when it is carefully drafted.
