I think is as follows (from my copy of last contract)
2.3. The Consultancy shall not and shall procure that any Staff provided in the performance of the Consultancy Services in the course of the Assignment shall not, whether directly or indirectly through any company, partnership or person, solicit nor enter into any contract with the Client or with any third party introduced to the Consultancy or any Staff by the Client, to provide any services of the same or a similar nature to those required in the course of the Assignment during the Assignment Period or during the twelve months following the Assignment period without Arrows Group’s prior written consent, which consent may be withheld in Arrows Group’s absolute discretion or granted, subject to any conditions Arrows Group may wish to impose.
Thanks. Unfortunately I don't think Company A are prepared to take the risk, as I have an inkling they may already be in dispute with Agency B. So I appear to be between a rock and a hard place. Could I propose to Company A some kind of letter/document that put all the liability to my company in case of any action?
