  • Exclusivity clause in retainer contract

    Hi, hoping someone can help me. I run a consultancy (Ltd. company) and I have obtained a new client. They want to include an exclusivity clause within the contract for me not to work with any of their competitors. They have not signed on the line but I have quite a lot of expertise in their niche, and having just left full-time employment to set up my own company, I really do not want to agree to it but at the same time I do need the client. Are there any legal reasons why I should/could refuse? Thanks!

    What does the exclusivity clause say in full?
