Restrictive Covenants in Employment Contracts

A Restrictive Convevant in an employment contract can be used to restrict an employee from competing with their previous employer for a specified time after they leave that employment. They can also be used to prevent an employee from poaching clients of the previous employer. Restrictive Covenants also have uses in protecting proprietary technology owned by a company.

Whether you are considering employing someone who is already on a Restrictive Covenant or whether you wish to bind a former employee to certain terms after termination of their employment we can help you navigate this complex area of law.

Restrictive Covenants are a notoriously difficult topic as each case will depend a lot on its own facts.
