Edited by Paul Goulding QC and written by a team of expert practitioners from Blackstone Chambers and Olswang, the new edition was published on Thursday 17 March 2016.

It combines an authoritative account of the substantive law with an overview of the relevant procedural issues. Topics covered include good faith, fiduciary duties, confidential information, garden leave, and restrictive covenants. Comprehensive coverage of available remedies (including injunctions, damages, and account of profits) ensures that the book is of real, practical value to practitioners.

Features new to this edition include: 

  • An expanded section on 'Team Moves', offering analysis and practical advice on recent case law in this fast developing area
  • A brand new chapter on 'Economic Torts and Liabilities of Third Parties', addressing diverse issues of third party liability, including where the new employer is joined as a defendant to a claim, and an analysis of OBG v Allen
  • An expanded section on deferred remuneration schemes and restrictive covenants, comprising a review of the principles and case law in what is likely to be an area ripe for future litigation
  • An expanded section on penalties, looking in depth at the implications of Imam-Sadeque v BlueBay
  • A rewritten chapter on Cross-Border Disputes reflecting changes in European law including the recast Brussels I Regulation, as interpreted by the Court of Appeal in Petter v EMC Corporation
