    Taylor Stuart & Co v Croft 7 May 1997 HC (0 other reports)

A covenant in restraint of trade which imposed a three-year restriction on an accountant on working for the firm's clients after his employment terminated was unreasonable and unenforceable, holds the High Court in Taylor Stuart & Co v Croft 7.5.97 High Court. But it could be severed from the other restraints found reasonable - namely, soliciting, canvassing and enticing away clients - so as to render those enforceable.
