Contracts often contain provisions that restrict what an employee - particularly a senior employee or director - can do both during a period of employment and after it has come to an end. These might be designed to prevent you from using sensitive information or from encouraging other employees to leave.
If you are proposing to leave your employment to work for a competitor, it is particularly important that you should know exactly what you are able to do if you are to avoid the threat of costly and time-consuming legal proceedings.
We can review your contract and advise whether or not such restrictive covenants are likely to be enforceable and, if so, what the associated consequences could be.
