Employment Solicitors

We have experience of obtaining injunctions to prevent breaches of restrictive covenants and non-compete clauses in contracts and agreements when either rival companies seek to poach talent or individuals decide to leave to compete in breach of their obligations. We have issued Court proceedings to prevent third parties inducing breaches of employment contracts.

Increasingly employment law interacts with reputation management. High level executives whose employment is terminated often resort to making statements to the media about their employers which overstep the mark.
