Restraint of Trade & Confidentiality


“They have many strong individuals and a breadth of expertise.”

St Philips Chambers is noted for its public and private sector expertise. St Philips Barristers has ‘a very good spread of available counsel’ advising claimants and respondents on matters ranging from restraint of trade and discrimination to breaches of contract and civil workplace harassment. – Legal 500

We recognise that clients demand specialist knowledge from barristers who are good on their feet, commercially minded and approachable. You will find barristers at St Philips who can meet your needs in restraint of trade and confidentiality litigation, work as part of a team with the client’s best interests in mind and achieve the very best results time after time.

Every senior member of the team is recommended by the legal press.

The “highly respected” Ed Beever is noted for his skill in matters regarding restrictive covenants and injunctive proceedings; and as regards his ability as a cross-examiner, “you would be hard pressed to find anyone who is as skilled”.

John Brennan is an “extremely good analytical lawyer [who] marries legal acumen with cautious common sense”.

In addition, Rob Mundy is a junior member of the team but already a force to be reckoned with- his work extending to restrictive covenant advice governed by the Dubai International Finance Centre- and we confidently believe that he will continue to rise in prominence and reputation.

The General Counsel of a major UK FMCG company said that Mark Grant “excels” at giving “pragmatic, commercial litigation advice…a valued and trusted member of my inner ‘external lawyer’ circle”.

Whether you need urgent representation in injunctive relief proceedings or seek advice on complex issues including fiduciary duties (where a number of our members have publication credits and regularly conduct seminars) or ancillary intellectual property, corporate or shareholder issues, we promise you a first-class service that you can trust.
