What happens if your clients and contacts follow when an employee leaves for a competitor or to set up on their own? We explore your steps.

The nightmare and risk that every business fears, what to do if your clients, customers, suppliers and/or staff walk out the door with an ex-employee, and go to a competitor?

In this session, Berwins’ Mike Patterson (Head of Employment) and Andrew Mawdsley (Head of Litigation), will give you practical guidance and tips on how best protect your business from this happening, and if it does what next.

This is an online event and a link will be made available to those who register.
