Can they really stop me doing that?
Restrictive covenants have near mythical status in employment law circles, even though plenty of employment contracts contain them. Many are so poorly worded that it is near impossible to work out what they mean. Even if they are worded perfectly, it is often the case that a judge will not agree they are reasonable.
This is where we come in. Whether you are seeking legal help before you leave your employment or are facing threatening letters from your ex-employer after you’ve left – or even just negotiating a new employment contract – our specialist employment lawyers are the legal experts to provide all the answers.
When you face complex legal restrictions on what you can and can’t do after you’ve left a job, it can often feel that your employer holds all the cards. They may well have experienced HR professionals, backed up by an intimidating law firm. That’s why you need the best advice and support available. That’s why you need a specialist employment lawyer – one who’s seen and done it all for many years – to see things from your point of view and help you minimise or avoid any legal risks.
Because we advise both employees and also large employers across the South West, Wales and beyond, we can predict the tactics and approaches you’re likely to face from your employer. We know all the tricks in the book. We very effectively use all of this insight to help you get to where you need to be.
Keeping you protected
We’ve supported many, many employees and executives over the years in this area of law. Some of them have been put into really difficult situations. Some have even been unable to earn a living because of harsh restrictive covenants in contracts they were made to sign years earlier. We understand how you feel and the pressures you may be under.
If your ex-employer threatens legal action against you, bringing in Menzies Law to represent you will send a strong message. Our reputation and our specialist expertise is well known and respected by HR team and other law firms across the UK. Having us on your side will be a significant asset.
