Post termination restrictions/Restraints of Trade
Offices in Leeds, London, Harrogate, Advice Across UK
If we have drafted your employment contracts we will have discussed with you what restrictions you require in order to protect your business should an employee leave.
The general approach by the courts to such restrictions is that they are void and unenforceable except insofar as they are reasonable and necessary to protect legitimate business interests such as for example confidential information.
We work with you to ensure the restrictions put in place are reasonable in terms of geographical restraints and time restrictions.
There are no hard and fast rules about what is definitely enforceable and each case is fact specific.
We tailor the restrictions rather than simply filling in the blanks so that in the event that you ever need to enforce the restrictions the clauses will protect your business rather than simply acting as a deterrent in the contract of employment.
If you are an employee worried about the enforceability of restrictions in your contract of employment, we are able to provide full and commercially sound advice as to your options.
We take full instructions from you and review the relevant restraints when we are in full possession of the facts of your case.
We then provide a full advice as to whether you are legitimately restricted and/or any other options as to how to exit as amicably as possibly from your employment.
If you require advice as to restrictions we will need to see your full contract of employment.

I can’t speak more highly of them.
Made everything more clear with extremely helpful advice.
Sensitive & Efficient
Many thanks to Laura and Kieran for the sensitive, and efficient way they dealt with my legal matter. Helping to make what was a very emotional time bearable, I can highly recommend the team at Consilia Legal.
Laura was exceptional. Having consulted with other firms on the matter, Laura was the only one that truly understood the different elements of the case and knew exactly how to handle it. She was able to daft in the correct barrister for the job and took a great weight off my shoulders. I really cant thank Laura and the team enough.
Laura and the team have been an incredible help in my divorce. Through a very difficult time they have always been on hand to offer exceptional advice and assistance. I have always felt reassured by their professionalism and care. Thank You
Thanks Laura and team at Consilia Legal. Great service and such a pragmatic and human approach to the legal system. Fitted really well with my personal values. Truly aimed at being conciliatory rather than adversarial
Excellent service from Laura Clapton guiding me through a difficult divorce process. Super efficient, professional and carries out the work with understanding and compassion for your situation. Would highly recommend and have already recommended.
