Restrictive covenants

A restrictive covenant is a standard yet vital tool for protecting a business after the departure of key employees.

Restrictive covenants can prevent the potentially serious damage that immediate competition from employees can create – either in the poaching of customers or use of valuable know-how.

If you are bringing a claim against a former employee, then our experts will guide you through the process. We will advise on the most effective way to approach the action that balances cost against the best possible outcome.

We will ensure that restrictive covenant clauses in your staff contracts protect your business with clear and precise wording. We can assess covenants already in place to ensure they are appropriate to the employee or help to draft new clauses for employees that are about to join the business.
