At the heart of every business is confidential and valuable information that is paramount to success, whether it’s client data, customer and supplier pricing information, or technical data and intellectual property. We protect this vital information by devising and enforcing restrictive covenants in contracts with employees, directors and shareholders – ensuring sensitive data is kept in your hands and out of the hands of your competitors.
When your business’s critical data is on the line, time is of the essence. We, as dispute resolution solicitors, work with you to gather evidence as a matter of urgency, moving quickly to protect your business before irreparable damage is caused so you can continue to operate with confidence.
We’ll do whatever we can to ensure that any confidential information or commercial connections remain protected, whether that involves obtaining an immediate injunction and issuing court proceedings, and/or deploying forensic examinations of computer equipment and networks.
We’ll also help you if you are facing the threat of an injunction and/or court proceedings being brought against your business.
We help organisations of all sizes and across a wide range of sectors. Recently, we’ve helped recruitment companies, energy suppliers, PR and marketing agencies, architects and financial services firms to successfully navigate restrictive covenant disputes.
We’ll always be upfront about any potential costs and give you straightforward, honest advice on how best to proceed.
