Date: 09/03/2018

Stuart Benzie succeeds in resisting a springboard injunction in the High Court.

Stuart Benzie has successfully defended a springboard injunction in a High Court employment case.

The purpose of a springboard injunction is to deprive the defendants of any head start they might have obtained by improper use of information or other property belonging to the claimant (or other unlawful conduct); the claimant had not demonstrated an ongoing springboard advantage or the length of time for which any advantage was said to last.

In the judgment, Nicholas Vineall QC provides guidance on the burden of proof for applicants.

Stuart was instructed by Freeths LLP.
