April 2023 – Bath – release from restrictions

The client instructed us to advise on a settlement agreement. We provided initial advice to enable the client to negotiate the sums. Once the draft settlement agreement was received we were still able to make additional improvements. We secured a release from his restrictive covenants on where he could work after the termination and also a reduction in the time periods for all restrictions given there was to be a period of garden leave which was very valuable for the client who worked in sales. We secured another quarter’s commission for him and also removed other unfavourable terms. There was no contribution from the client in legal fees and this was covered by his employer.
