Expertise

Employees are often privy to sensitive commercial information and intangible assets during the course of their employment. SWS Lawyers always recommends employers have a well-drafted employment contract in place to protect our clients against the misuse of their intangible assets.

SWS Lawyers assists our clients in responding to breaches of confidentiality and misuse of intangible assets by their employees, including issuing letters of demand and cease and desist letters to employees in relation to post-employment conduct and, if necessary, representing our clients in Court proceedings to protect their business interests.

We also assist our clients in disputes involving the ownership of intellectual property developed by an employee during the course of their employment.

SWS Lawyers also assists our clients take action in respect of other conduct an employee may engage in, such as disparagement of the business to customers and suppliers.

Their approach is always professional and delivered at a standard comparable to a capital city law firm. It is the clear strategic direction that has always impressed me about the SWS team.
