Some former employees have set up in competition. I now find that they incorporated their business and declared themselves as directors months before leaving my employ. Where do I stand legally?

Did you have any contractual clause preventing this either post or pre termination? Did you have a contractual clause saying they could only work for you?
They have breached the duty of mutual trust and confidence - but this was some months ago.
Legally you could try and take action but you wont get very far except big legal bills.
However if they hav taken anything from you (such as a client list) it might be worth trying to recover.
