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 an ex-employee who you suspect is acting in breach of post-termination restrictions, get in touch with us straight away. We can advise you urgently 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 further, damage.
Our specialists have acted for the employer in the reported case, Tim Russ & Co v Robertson and others  EWHC 3470 (Ch).
