Anyone with a successful business knows that protecting its products, processes, ideas and interests is vital for its continued success.

Protection of legitimate business interests is possible through the use of properly drafted restrictive covenants.

Restrictive covenants can be used by businesses to protect themselves from former employees using trade secrets and confidential information acquired during employment for their own benefit or that of a third party. They can also be used to restrict their ability to work for a competitor.

Our Employment Law experts can help you draft appropriate and enforceable restrictions for your business. If the restrictions are too wide then they are likely to be unenforceable and therefore individual tailoring is essential to get the protection you need.

We can also advise individuals and businesses on the enforceability of restrictive covenants and on applications for injunctions or other measures in the county or high court should any alleged breaches take place.
