Choosing the Right Restrictive Covenants Solicitors "If your former employer decides you are contravening a clause that was meant to protect his business interests, he might be prepared to take you to court. In that case, consult with a firm of restrictive covenants solicitors to protect your rights. This is a complex area of employment law and not something you can handle on your own. There are legitimate reasons for employers to insert restrictions into an employment contract. They want to protect trade secrets, relationships with clients, and the stability of their organization. When you accept the job, you sign off on these restrictions. However, when you are finished your employment relationship with that company, you might find that you have different interpretations of these restrictions. In order to resolve disputes that can affect the rest of your reputation and your career in that industry, you need professional help. There are huge questions about the enforceability of these restrictions generally, and there are many judicial responses to cases before the court or employment tribunal. Some judges have been known to deconstruct the clauses and decide what pieces might be appropriate and what are to be ignored. There are a few basic qualities to look for in a solicitor you can trust to represent your interests. Client focused. The firm should be firmly focused on what is best for you, the client. This is one case in which you can expect some bias. Participatory. You are kept up to date and involved in every step and every decision. Wide corporate knowledge. Even if you are working with a junior solicitor, you should be confident that he has access to all the corporate knowledge and advice for your case. Robust record of success. Ask for non-identifiable summaries of similar cases. Creative. This is a changing field of law. It is good to have a solicitor who can think beyond obvious, stale arguments. Check for any awards the firm has won from peers.<br />â€¢ References. As for references to check their level of comfort with and trust of the particular solicitor you are choosing. Remember that a good solicitor does not make promises about the outcomes. This is not a cut and dried area of law. Instead, he will commit to exploring all avenues and sharing realistic expectations. Make a careful, informed decision about which firm of restrictive covenants solicitors to choose and you can go forward with confidence."
