Omnicom'sAgency.comhas filed a $19.5 million lawsuit against digital and search agency iCrossing, claiming it stole several of Agency.com's key clients and top executives when CEO Donald Scales left Agency.com for iCrossing.

The suit, filed in state court in Dallas, alleges that the losses, dating back to 2006, ultimately led to the closing of Agency.com's Dallas office, specifically through breach of contract, tortuous interference and conspiring to misappropriate proprietary information and trade secrets.

"Our legal counsel is currently reviewing," Dana Mellecker, director of PR for iCrossing, said in an e-mail to DMNews.

Rachel Brown, PR and marketing associate for Agency.com, said her company cannot comment on ongoing litigation.
