Employment

Restrictive Covenant and Team Moves

Our employment lawyers understand that protecting your assets such as confidential information and trade secrets is a priority and fundamental to your company’s success. We have extensive experience advising employers in situations involving restrictive covenants, team moves and injunctions.

The departure of a valued employee or team often raises sensitive and complex legal issues which need to be addressed as a matter of urgency.

Our team can help you protect these assets from the outset by drafting reasonable, workable intellectual property rights clauses, confidentiality clauses and post termination restrictive covenants into your employee’s contract of employment. Where such clauses are breached our lawyers are on hand to advise you on the most appropriate course of action you can take to remedy the situation; be that an injunction, mediation or legal proceedings and if the matter does proceed to court, the recovery of damages against the offending employees.

We also advise employers who are recruiting a team from a competitor as well as those who are seeking protection and/or damages in the Courts where a team has moved to a competitor.
