To protect sensitive commercial information, many business use non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) in business-to-business relationships. Employees may also be subject to confidentiality agreements designed to protect trade secrets and customer information. 

If you suspect a business partner or employee is disclosing or using confidential information without authorisation, our team can assist you to quickly apply for an injunction to prevent sensitive information being leaked or used to the detriment of your business. We can also pursue a damages claim on your behalf if a breach of confidence has already occurred.

How can we assist with restrictive covenants? 

The last thing any employer wants is a former employee leaving and taking their clients' business with them. Not only do former employees have access to client details, they are also well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of your operation and can exploit these to their own advantage. 

If this happens, we can advise you on where you stand and help you to take appropriate steps to protect your interests, including quickly and effectively seeking injunctions and pursuing damage claims. 

Equally, if you want to leave your current employer and set up on your own, our experience of drafting and analysing restrictions in contracts means we are perfectly placed to advise as to the effectiveness of any restrictions on you and help you develop a strategy to establish your business and deal with attempts by your former employer to stop you.

Funding options

To help clients manage the costs, our Dispute Resolution department offers a range of funding options. From traditional ‘pay by the hour’ arrangements to fixed fees in certain situations, our aim is to take the uncertainty out of the costs of litigating and, where appropriate, to share the risk with you.
