Business Protection

Employees leaving your business, taking confidential information, and joining a competitor or setting up on their own can cause huge damage to your company. On the other hand, you may want to recruit new staff subject to restrictions.

We can help put in place enforceable restrictions designed to protect your business, and give you a commercial view on how best to utilise them should the need arise.

With the appropriate documentation in place, the damage can be minimised and you can restrict the activities of the employees who have left.

If the worst happens, we can use the court process to take action against those intent on damaging your business, and minimise the risk of it happening again.

We can also provide advice to employers seeking to recruit new talent and looking to manage the risk of existing restrictions.
