Global Guide to Restrictive Covenants

27 February 2014
Mayer Brown Book

Few areas of employment law differ as significantly between countries as the laws relating to post-termination restrictions. The increasing trend for key employees to have international responsibilities and be globally mobile, and for post termination restrictions to apply across many different jurisdictions is a challenge. In reality, when enforcement issues arise the decisions taken in the early stages of action may determine the outcome weeks or months later.

That’s why we have created a Global Guide to Restrictive Covenants in over 40 key countries. In it we discuss non-compete covenants, non-solicitation covenants and non-solicitation of employees' clauses, issues relating to employee benefits, pensions, stock plans and more…

We hope you find this publication useful. It contains the insights of lawyers from across Mayer Brown’s global office network and collaborating law firms in other jurisdictions.
