We routinely advise employers and senior executives in relation to the drafting and enforceability of post termination restrictions and employee confidentiality requirements, often referred to as restrictive covenants.
All businesses should ensure they have appropriate post-termination protection in place in relation to their senior employees. Otherwise, you risk key employees leaving with important information and customer or supplier contacts and the ability to compete and damage your business. It is also important to ensure this protection is kept up to date to ensure it remains enforceable.
We draft documentation on behalf of clients to maximise the prospect of the enforceability of such provisions, together with taking steps to protect our clients’ interests to enforce restrictions.
Such steps often include pre-action correspondence with individuals, their new employers and their legal representatives, together with a full range of appropriate legal remedies. Such as actions for recovery of damages and enforcement by way of injunctions.
Our employment team are ranked and recognised by the prestigious Legal 500 in 2017 edition, as a Tier 2 law firm, therefore you can be assured that you will receive a quality service and legal advice to reflect this.
We are aware that clarity on costs is vitally important to our clients. As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work at the outset. We then provide cost updates on a your case on a regular basis.
We also work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations both in terms of their objectives for a particular piece of work and in relation to costs. In addition, we are happy to discuss fixed fees and retainer arrangements and agreements if that is helpful to you.
Finally, your work is carried out by a solicitor in the team, who knows your business best. It is also carried out at the appropriate level, depending on the complexity, sensitivity and importance of the matter.
