Restrictive covenants

  • Our priority is to protect your business from former employees
  • We are expert at creating contracts for senior employees to limit  their ability to take advantage of confidential information after they leave
  • We approach all disputes in confidence and with commercial understanding

Every business has information that it considers both integral and invaluable to its success. Restricting the use of this information by employees after their employment has ended may be vital to the protection of your business or contacts.

Employers can seek to protect the use of this information both during employment and after the employment ends using what are known as restrictive covenants.

A restrictive covenant is a clause in a contract which prohibits an employee from competing with their ex-employer for a certain period or prevents the ex-employee from contacting customers of the business after leaving the business.

Many employers include these clauses in the contracts of employment of senior or highly skilled staff at the commencement of the employment relationship.

Our experts can advise on:

  • Drafting restrictive covenant
  • Enforcing restrictive covenant post termination
  • Reviewing restrictive covenant
  • Remedies for breach of restrictive covenants
  • Settlement Agreements
