Restraint Clauses

RESTRAINT CLAUSES: WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?

First things first. We know you’re likely to need urgent advice, whether you are a business trying to stop someone defying your restraints, or an ex-employee facing a threat. So one of our solicitors will take your call straight away wherever possible, or call you back on the same day. Or answer your email on the same day if you prefer. We do not believe in making you wait for an appointment when we can give you an immediate initial steer in the right direction. It’s all part of addressing restraint clause problems promptly.

Give us a call now if you’re convinced. Or read on for some more guidance.

What’s it all about?

Upholding legal duties – or recognising when restraint clauses are unenforceable because they go too far. Protecting reasonable commercial interests – or upholding the right to earn a living.

How can we help?

We’ll advise you how best to make a formal threat that strikes the right balance in protecting your interests, or how to answer one. If the right step is to ease off, or propose a deal, we’ll explain why. If going to court looks like the only option, we’ll tell you how long it’s likely to take, what your chances are, and how much it is likely to cost.

I’ve heard that prevention is better than cure.

You’re quite right. We can help by reviewing anything you rely on at the moment and by recommending sensible changes. Or if you are being asked to sign up to a new service agreement, and you’re concerned about what you might be letting yourself in for, we can advise you what to agree and how to raise sensible objections.
