A highly committed professional, Hans Erik has known our organisation longer than we have. He is a creative team player and always thinks five steps ahead.
We advise both businesses and employees in the drafting and review of non-compete and non-solicitation clauses. Once such a clause has been signed, we support employers who wish to enforce compliance and assist employees embroiled in disputes or differences of interpretation.
Our areas of expertise
All our lawyers have extensive experience with both the drafting of non-compete and non-solicitation clauses and with advising, negotiating and litigating with regard thereto. We are familiar with the case law and can quickly infer the consequences of non-compliance. Our litigation experience facilitates predicting how a court will rule in a particular dispute.
This is how we do it
To start with, we take the topic extremely seriously. Since a subdistrict court has the power to annul, it is a commonly held belief that non-compete and non-solicitation clauses are essentially just for show. We know better: the consequences of non-compliance can be considerable.
That is why we advise clients carefully about the scope of provisions, any potential grey areas, and the potential consequences thereof - not only for the former employee but also for the latter’s new employer. Benefiting from the violation of a clause is, after all, also potentially wrongful!
