A Restraint of Trade is a type of contract clause that can restrict workers from competing against their workplace. It’s generally part of an employment agreement or contractor agreement.
If you are leaving your employer and looking to start your own business, it’s important to make sure you understand the risks under your employment contract, particularly as it is often not clear cut.
This is where it’s helpful to have an experienced lawyer look over the Restraint of Trade clauses in your contract. Our lawyers can advise you on the risks these clauses may pose to you, and fill you in on any other issues you need to be aware of.
Our fixed-fee packages for Restraint of Trade Advice start at $950 + GST.
This includes an initial discussion with a Sprintlaw lawyer to obtain your instructions, and a review of the restraint clauses in the agreement that you provide to us. You’ll also receive ‘high level’ written advice summarising the key issues and risks of the restraint clauses. From here, you’ll get follow-up phone consultations with a lawyer to take you through our advice and answer any questions you have about the document.
As an online law firm, we eliminate the headaches of paying us by the hour and finding time to meet with a lawyer in person. We communicate via phone, email and cloud conferencing — whichever suits you! We know you’re busy, so we’re only a click away.
You’ll be guided through this process by our expert lawyers, who are Australian-qualified and were trained at leading law firms.
