At Waterfront our employment team has more than 20 years’ experience advising on all aspects of the protection of confidential information and the law of post-termination restrictions. We can help you put in place appropriate contractual restrictions, so that the risk of a current or ex-employee damaging your business is limited. If there is a breach or damage is caused then we can vigorously defend your interests whilst guiding you on the best strategy to limit any losses and to seek adequate recompense from the other party.
We also advise individuals on the restrictive covenants proposed by their employer and can assist with the negotiation of provisions which are fair to both parties, whilst not unreasonably preventing someone from moving on to a new job in future. When a dispute arises and legal action is threatened or brought, we represent employees and their new employers to achieve the best possible outcome for them, whether that’s to fight or to broker an agreed resolution.
