CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION: My lips are sealed

28 September 2012  

Anna Pertoldi and Maura McIntosh consider a recent decision on protection of confidential information

In Generics (UK) Ltd v Yeda Research & Development Co Ltd [2012], the Court of Appeal has considered whether, and in what circumstances, a former employed lawyer will be restrained from acting adverse to a former employer in order to protect that former employer’s confidential information. This is a decision that may have far-reaching consequences for professionals and their employers alike.
