Competition and confidentiality advice from experienced High Wycombe solicitors

Protecting your company’s trade secrets and confidential information against the harmful competitive activities of employees and ex-employees is a complex area of law.

While employees are still working for you, you will have substantial protection, but as soon as they leave your employment this changes. Any ‘restrictive covenants’ have to be carefully worded, so they don’t restrict an individual’s freedom to work, but do protect your business interests.

As experienced employment law solicitors in High Wycombe, we’ve a wealth of experience of advising clients from Marlow and the High Wycombe area on exactly what they need to do to protect their business interests.
