Restrictive Covenants and Confidentiality
  1. Restrictive Covenants and Confidentiality

    Protecting an organisation’s confidential information, customer base and key employees is usually critical to the ongoing success of the business.

    Post termination restrictions (restrictive covenants) are therefore essential to safeguard the business and must be carefully drafted to maximise the chances that they will be enforceable in the event that they need to be relied upon.

    …provides an excellent level of service with rapid response

    THE LEGAL 500 UK

    We advise employers on post termination restrictions, both at the point of drafting and negotiating the restrictions and when an employee is leaving his or her employment. We also advise employers where it is suspected that post termination restrictions may have been breached and we advise employers who are looking to hire someone who had restrictive covenants in their previous contract of employment.

    We are experienced in providing pragmatic advice and assistance to clients across all industries to help them protect their confidential information and prevent unfair competition in what are commonly very tight time constraints.
