Post-Termination Restrictions: Supreme Court to the Rescue
18th July, 2019
Céline Winham considers recent Supreme Court case which clarifies enforcement of post-termination restrictions in contracts of employment
Fiona Moss, Associate and Imanpreet Suthar, Trainee in our Corporate and Commercial team describe the legal implications for suppliers following road closures resulting from the recent burst pipes across London and a fuel spillage in Reigate Hill. Road closures are frustratingly inevitable but when this means disruption to, or loss, of business or perhaps causes a supplier to breach stringent delivery obligations, will the supplier be relieved from performance? Just over a week ago the A217 (Reigate Hill) was closed for 2 days for re-surfacing following a two-vehicle collision which resulted in 120 litres of diesel fuel being spilled. Across London, the burst water mains meant that roads were closed making many businesses inaccessible. Road closures such as this can cause problems for commercial suppliers in particular regarding the timing of delivery. Whilst practical advice is to keep abreast of traffic disruptions and seek alternative delivery routes, this is not always possible.
Above all, take specialist legal advice to ensure that your business is properly protected. For further information please contact Fiona Moss.
