Competition: Common Law Restraints of Trade

I have written a new article on common law restraints of trade and linked it to existing case notes that we wrote some time ago on:
- Emersub XXXVI Inc and Another v Wheatley (1999) 14 July 1998 Queen's Bench Division: Wright J;
- International Consulting Services (UK) Ltd v Hart [2000] IRLR 227; and
- Prosoft Resources Ltd. v Griffiths [1999] ScotCS 96 13 Apr 1999 (Lord Maclean).

Emmersub does not appear ever to have been reported which is a pity as it is an interesting case that illustrates what should happen where an employee is also the vendor of a business.
