Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : Was this a contract between companies or were you employed please?
It was between companies
Alex Watts : Did both companies read and agree the contract terms? I assume they did?
Yes they did
Alex Watts : Ok. Then yes it is enforceable.
Alex Watts : If it was a consumer contract it may not be enforceable as there are all sorts of rules such as unfair terms in consumer contract regulations etc
Alex Watts : But these do not apply to business to business contracts.
Alex Watts : As long as each business understood the terms, they are enforceable. They agreed to them and no court is going to go behind what they intended and agreed to.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes. I thought this may be covered under the restraint of trade rules. My company provided sales support for Parmacontrols.
Parmacontrols is a re-seller of equipment provided by other manufacturers. The company that I want to work with is an OEM.
That supplies equipment similar to that supplied by Parmacontrols.
The only thing that I would be taking with me is my contacts that I have built up over a number of years all of which were acquired before I start to work with Parmacontrols.
Alex Watts : Previous work is likely to be fine, but anything acquired whilst a under this contract unlikely to be.
Alex Watts :
