What can we do
If you have restrictive covenants (sometimes called non-competes or non-solicitation agreements) in your employment contracts, it's vital to understand their implications. With many such agreements unenforceable or an unlawful restraint of trade, it's critical that employment contracts are periodically reviewed.
Our team of employment law experts can review the clauses in your contract, consider if there is a legitimate business interest to protect, and whether the extent of the restraint is enforceable. Protecting your business whilst saving you time and money. We can help with:
- Enforceability audits
- Bespoke drafting of contracts, confidentiality clauses & settlement agreements
- Recruitment advice on a new hire who has restrictive covenants
- Letters before action
- Injunctive support
