Employment Disputes

At the forefront of opening up new ways to deliver business legal services, Outset’s approach combines consistent quality, excellent communications and leading edge technology to ensure the best possible outcome at an affordable cost.

Restrictive Covenants and Confidentiality

Keeping confidential information out of a competitor’s hands is vital to most businesses these days. Sometimes this involves ensuring employees can’t resign and immediately take up a position with your biggest rivals. Or even poach customers and other members of your team when they go. 

This is where including covenants and confidentiality agreements within employment and director service contracts come in. However, if things are not precisely and carefully drafted, this could result in your business not being as protected as you thought it was. Even ‘cribbing’ similar covenants from previous contracts and hoping for the best can lead to disastrous loss of business should the worse happen. 

Outset will protect you from these risks by: 

  • Drafting restrictive covenants that are legally enforceable. 
  • Defending your legal claims where covenants have already been breached. 
  • Moving quickly to protect your company and take enforcement action where necessary. 
  • Providing our specialist knowledge and significant experience to support you throughout every step of the process.

From gathering evidence to enforcing your legal rights, our pragmatic, commercially minded and supportive approach is exactly what you need in these situations.

We see Outset as members of our team as we are all on the same side. We have a great working relationship where roles and rules don’t get in the way of getting the job done. They have always been fun and very easy to get on with.

I have worked with Outset for many years and I have found that they never rest on their laurels and constantly strive to work in partnership with us to ensure that their advice reflects our commercial ethos and approach to human resources and risk management.

We have engaged Outset on a number of occasions since December 2011 to provide us with legal and HR services covering a variety of issues. On each of these matters, we have found Outset to be detailed and robust in the handling of the matters. They were not risk adverse to support us in taking a calculated approach. The advice that we have received has been detailed and robust and has assisted our managers in handling situations confidently.
