    Hollis & Co v Stocks [2000] IRLR 712 CA (0 other reports)

A non-competition covenant that prevented a solicitor from working within a specified area for 12 months after he left the firm he worked for did not mean that he was prevented from doing any work at all, holds the Court of Appeal in Hollis & Co v Stocks 9.5.00 Court of Appeal. The covenant had to be read as preventing him from working as a solicitor.
