Confidentiality and restrictive covenants

Your organisation’s greatest assets are often the intangible ones. Customer connections, trade secrets and other confidential information are amongst the most sensitive and important assets many organisations possess.

Furley Page Employment Law team has the expertise to advise your organisation on how to protect against the misuse of such intangible assets, which will help you to continue in maximising your business opportunities.

Protecting the interests of the organisation

We can help you to identify:

  • What interests the law allows you to protect;
  • What provisions and tactics you might adopt to enhance that protection;
  • How to deter the misuse of confidential information;
  • What can be done to prevent the solicitation, by current and former employees, of your customers and staff; and
  • To what extent you may be able to prevent competition from former employees.

Our services include:

  • Drafting confidentiality clauses and restrictive covenants in employment contracts;
  • Inserting appropriate confidentiality clauses and restrictive covenants in settlement agreements;
  • Advising on the enforceability of restrictive covenants;
  • Advising on tactics and the merits of seeking a springboard injunction.
