Restrictive Covenant Services

Your customers, your staff and your confidential information are critical to your business. Protecting your business through enforceable contracts and robust internal processes is a vital component for continued commercial success.

Our Services

We can help you protect your business through:

  • Preventative measures, such as drafting enforceable post-termination restrictive covenants, confidentiality and intellectual property clauses. We can audit your current provisions in order to identify and address areas of risk.
     
  • Strategic advice on the potential recruitment or resignation of employees and/or teams, and effective risk management.
     
  • Pre-litigation solutions such as negotiated undertakings and commercial settlements.
     
  • High Court litigation to obtain:
     
    • injunctive relief to enforce restrictive covenants;
    • delivery-up and search orders to protect your data from unlawful use and secure its return.
