You are ready to leave your employer and either set up on your own or join the competition. This is usually the point when you realise that your contract of employment contains some restrictions that say that you can’t do it.
Whether you or your new employer have just received a solicitor’s letter on behalf of your ex employer or whether you just want to see if you can accept the job offer before you resign, we can assess just how enforceable these clauses might be.
The cases on post-termination restrictions tend to be specific to the facts in each situation. However, the cost of bringing or defending an injunction to enforce them can be prohibitive. We can help you negotiate the terms of your post termination restrictions and defend you in circumstances where you are being threatened by your ex employer. If no agreement is reached, we will introduce you to specialised litigation lawyers who will fight for you.
