Restraint of Trade
The firm has been instructed on a variety of occasions to calculate the losses arising from improper restraints of trade. These situations typically arise when former employers attempt to apply unfair restrictions on the activities of former employees. Alternatively they can arise from unfair trading practices, such as the operation of cartels.
Typically we are instructed by lawyers on behalf of the aggrieved party and our role is to calculate the losses arising from the specific market distortion. This aspect is part of a general area of loss valuation which can arise from a wide spectrum of commercial disputes.
