Enforcing restrictive covenants

Employment costs are the single biggest budget item for most businesses, taking wages, benefits and investment in training into account. So it’s no wonder that an employee leaving to join a competitor or set up on their own can cause so much concern and frustration.

A defecting employee can cause real damage. It’s made even worse – and can be very difficult to overcome – if they poach key customers or other employees.

If you find yourself faced with such a situation, get in touch with us straightaway. We can meet with you urgently to advise you on your options. If necessary, we’ll issue an application to the court for an injunction to prevent your former employee from causing your business any, or any further, damage.

Our director Andrew King has a specific interest in this area, and acted for the employer in the reported case of Tim Russ & Co -v- Robertson and others [2011] EWHC 3470 (Ch).
