Gainesville ‘trade secrets’ raid involves parties in civil lawsuit

Two real estate agents targeted in a search warrant related to “trade secrets” theft have been battling their former real estate company in court over hundreds of thousands of dollars in commissions. 

And the company they say owes them is the company that sent police after them.

Mike Ryals and Dan Drotos ran “The Drotos Ryals Group,” a high-volume commercial real estate division under Bosshardt Realty Services, before going to Colliers International in April 2019. Several other agents went with them.

They were named in a search warrant that was executed at Colliers’ Gainesville office on June 2. 

Residents have complained to the Gainesville Police Department about the show of force in the raid at 107 SW 7th St.
