Can you represent a business in bringing a breach of restrictive covenant claim?

We act for businesses who require advise and representation on claims for breach of clauses in their employment contracts relating to an employee:

  • not competing with it for a specified period (generally referred as a non-compete clause);
  • not making attempts to lure away their current customers/clients or employees for a specified period (generally referred to as a non-solicitation clause);
  • not deal with certain customers/clients or potential customers/clients for a specified period (generally referred to as a non-dealing clause) ;
  • not disclosing confidentiality information to their competitors.

We ensure the business are provided with the best chance of obtaining a court order, called an injunction, for the former employee to cease and desist from their action and therefore causing less damage to the business through:

  1. Prompt advice and pre-action discussions.
  2. Identifying and collating the relevant documentation.
  3. Prompt issuing of proceedings.
