Restrictive Covenants and Confidential Information Claims

If an employee, director or consultant, leaves their employment and attempts to breach the restrictive covenants contained in their contract, this can have a very damaging and lasting effect on a business. The clients and customers of a business are its most precious asset and a list is often kept on a confidential database, which could have disastrous implications in the hands of a competitor.

Working closely with the employment team, we seek to address the problem quickly. Speed is of the essence in these situations. Where necessary, we take enforcement action through the Court, including obtaining urgent Injunction Orders to enforce the restrictive covenants and to force the person to stop breaching their contract and hand back any confidential information they have taken.

Any financial loss can then be recovered in a damages claim against the person concerned. Likewise, we have many years experience in acting for employees and former directors to successfully defend claims made against them for breach of contract and/or breach of confidence.
