Seabrokers Ltd v Riddell - restrictive covenant - Scottish Court of Session 15.8.07

This case concerns a post-termination restrictive covenant, in which Seabrokers Ltd attempted to enforce a non-competition "quarantine period" clause against an employee. Mr Riddell, the employee in question, was offered alternative employment at a competitor, gave notice and "duly served a three month period of garden leave".
