    Euro Brokers Ltd v Rabey [1995] IRLR 206 HC (0 other reports)

A lavish and expensive customer connection which has been developed by an employee at his employer's expense is part of the latter's goodwill, and is something which it is entitled to protect, holds the High Court in Euro Brokers Ltd v Rabey. In this case, the potential damage to such customer connections justified an interlocutory injunction to prevent an employee from working for competitors during his six-month notice period.
