Restraint of trade

Has one of your employees set up a competitive business using your business contacts and confidential information?

Employers are able to protect themselves by including clauses in their employment contracts to prohibit their employees from engaging in such competition. These clauses are called restrictive covenants.

The Ansons dispute resolution team specialises in advising employers on:

  • enforcing restrictive covenants
  • obtaining injunctions to prohibit breach of covenants
  • return of confidential information
  • springboard injunctions

If you believe one of your employees has taken your confidential information, or is acting in breach of a restrictive covenant, you must act quickly.

Our specialist dispute resolution solicitors based in Cannock and Lichfield, Staffordshire, can provide you with expert legal advice on enforcing restrictive covenants and protecting your confidential information and goodwill.
