Business Protection

Talent is often an employer’s greatest asset and whilst you cannot prevent employees from leaving from time to time, you can limit the damage an employee’s departure can or may potentially cause.

Part of limiting such damage is by ensuring that employees have agreed to appropriate clauses managing their behaviour during employment, post-termination restrictive obligation and you have appropriate contractual provisions relating to confidentiality and intellectual property in place.

Post-termination restrictions can prevent employees from, for example, joining competitive organisations, soliciting clients, soliciting other employees, interfering with suppliers and much more.

Post-termination restrictions are very complicated and require bespoke and expert drafting to be enforceable. Herrington Carmichael’s Employment department regularly advise and draft restrictive covenants and can advise you how best to protect your business.

Herrington Carmichael can also advise your business through any enforcement proceedings that you need to take against former employees or that you may receive when you are hiring new employees
