Have You Had An Employee Leave To Start A Competing Business?

I have seen this a number of times and these things can be bloody, especially with integrators fighting for a relatively small number of large local clients.

Whether it was from your own business or it was one of your co-workers, etc., what experiences do you have to share there? Any ways to mitigate the problem?
