I work on acquisitions/sales of companies. I showed ABC Co. ownership a potential acquisition (XYZ Co.) that they passed on. A few months later, ABC Co. themselves was for sale. ABC's private equity ownership group sold ABC...and then the new private equity owners (with some ABC management still in place) bought the company I showed them. The NDA was still in effect and management team wouldn't have even known of the existence of the company had we not shown it to them.
What is the recourse here? To complicate things, I am no longer with the firm that confidentiality agreement was with. I have since opened my own shop. Thanks for any advice on this.
