BCLP Partner Claire Fougea and Lawyer Margot Jouannet authored an article published April 19 in DAF Magazine and Be a Boss concerning the French Supreme Court’s clarifications regarding the drafting of a non-competition clause in an employment contract and its removal in case of breach of contract. “To be essential to the protection of the company's legitimate interests, the non-competition clause does not necessarily have to specify the competitive risks incurred,” they wrote. “If the purpose of the clause is clearly to grant the employee a disproportionate advantage, the employer may oppose payment of the clause on the grounds that it is not valid.”
