Our lawyers can advise and represent employers or purchasers of a business regarding the enforcement of non-compete, non-solicit clauses or confidentiality agreements.

An employer or purchaser of a business who wishes to enforce a restrictive covenant can pursue an interim injunction from the Court, which prohibits the employee from breaching the covenant. Various types of injunctions may be sought, including:

  • Injunctions enforcing post-termination restrictive covenants;
  • Injunctions preventing the use of the employer’s confidential information.

An employer or purchaser of a business can also seek damages following an employee’s breach of a covenant if there is particular loss tied to the breach.
