Restraint of Trade
Restraint of Trade Clauses or ‘Restrictive Covenants’

General principle:
Nordenfelt v Maxim Nordenfelt [1894] AC 535 (HL), 565 (Lord Macnaghten):

‘The public have an interest in every person’s carrying on his trade freely: so has the individual. All interference with individual liberty of action in trading, and all restraints of trade of themselves, if there is nothing more, are contrary to public policy

. . . . ’

Esso v Harper’s Garage [1968] AC 269 (HL), 306 C-D (Lord Morris):

In these cases … there are two freedoms to be considered – one the freedom of trade and the other the freedom of contract; and to that I will now again venture to add that it is a mistake to think that public interest is only concerned with one; it is concerned with both.’
