Restrictive Covenants

We approach every issue creatively to achieve the best results

Restrictive covenants are conditions set out in your contract that can impact you once your contract has ended. Non-compete clauses are a common example of restrictive covenants.

Our expertise

The implications of restrictive covenants are often difficult to understand; we offer consultations prior to signing your contract to help you better understand these conditions. Our employment lawyers can advise you on what you can and cannot do following a contract with restrictive covenants. Please get in touch for a consultation.

Restrictive covenants are only enforceable as long as they protect the legitimate business interests of the organisation; anything beyond this can be seen as an unlawful restriction of trade. Understanding the difference between them may not be easy, and we advise that you speak with a member of our employment team to get some clarity before agreeing to these terms in your contracts.

How Barnes Law can help you?

Should you, as an employee need clarity and understanding regarding what can be included within a contract, we advise on contract drafting and can outline what your legal position is.

If you are a business, we are equally experienced in providing legal support should your employee, or ex-employee, be in breach of terms (for example, if your ex-employee is soliciting members of your team after signing a Non-solicitation clause) and you require advice on pursuing further action.

Call us on +44 (0) 208 092 2700 or email us at to discuss your situation and see how Barnes Law can help you today.
