Theft Case May Leave Brand TCS Bruised

Tata Consultancy Services is facing yet another lawsuit in the US, this time for allegedly stealing trade secrets that could severely dent the firm’s image in its largest market. Last week, Computer Sciences Corp (CSC), a former client of TCS, alleged in a lawsuit that TCS America has been stealing its trade secrets.

“IT firms need to be at an arm’s length from their software divisions, and create a separate legal entity for them. Not only does the software unit require to be a separate legal entity, but the company should also ensure that the employees and management are totally independent. Unless, that happens, such allegations cannot be ruled out,” said Sanchit Gogia, CEO of Greyhound Research.
