Atypical restrictive covenants

This practice note looks at contractual clauses other than traditional post-termination restrictive covenants, which can amount to indirect restraints of trade. These clauses, which are often found in deferred remuneration schemes, bonus schemes, long-term incentive plans and share plans, may be used (or may be viewed as being used) to limit unfair competition.
