Injunction sought against client for breach of restrictive covenant
23 February 2010
High court proceedings were brought against our client for breach of a restrictive covenant not to join a competitor or engage in competitive activities. Our client’s ex-employer sought an urgent interim injunction restraining him from continuing his employment with his new employer. Although we had just a few days to prepare, we were able to put together a robust defence and were fully equipped to vigorously defend our client’s position. The court was very sympathetic to our client and encouraged the parties to come to a resolution without the need for injunctive relief, which they did. We were later able to settle the matter out of court and the client was able to return to his new job with minimal disruption.
