Restrictive Covenants

Restrictive Covenants

Restraint of Trade, Confidentiality and IP

Confidential information, trade secrets and business contacts are key business assets. If they are not adequately protected they can be exploited by third parties, such as former employees, resulting in potentially substantial losses.

Our specialist employment solicitors will work with you to protect your commercial information as far as possible under the law.

If you have suffered, or are about to suffer, loss as a result of the disclosure or use of your commercial information, our dedicated employment team can advise you in respect of all the potential remedies available to you, including financial compensation and injunctive relief.

Team moves

Team moves, in which 2 or more employees leave to join a competitor or set up on their own, can be hugely damaging to a business. Our experienced lawyers can help you manage this risk, from drafting robust clauses in your employment contracts to guard against team moves, through to litigation and possible injunctive relief in the event that a team move happens or is threatened.
