Restraint of trade

Young v Evan-Jones

[2001] EWCA 732

A covenant in favour of doctor landlords in respect of a pharmacy attached to surgery, which required the tenant at the end of the term to use his best endeavours to procure the transfer of the health authority licence to particular persons, was in restraint of trade. However, on the facts the covenant was reasonable both in the public interest and in the interest of the parties.
