    Wincanton Ltd v (1) Cranny (2) SDM European Transport Ltd [2000] IRLR 716 CA (0 other reports)

In Wincanton Ltd v Cranny and another 22.5.00 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that a non-solicitation covenant was, owing to its internal limitations, not too wide as to be unenforceable. The ex-employee was forbidden to solicit only in respect of services he himself had been engaged in providing in his last 12 months of employment, and in respect of persons with whom he himself had dealt in the course of their dealings with the employer during the previous two years.
