Am I tied by Non Compete/solicitation agreement

Iam providing contract software services at client 'C' thru Vendor 'B' and a layer 'A' where my employer is 'V'. Here is the structure (V -> A -> B -> C)

B was willing to work directly with my employer V; but V and A has a noncompete/solicitation agreement, as below and agreement is for 2 years.

V and its employees, staff, agents and subcontractors shall not during the term of this
Agreement and for a period of twelve (12) months following the termination of this Agreement, directly or
indirectly, through any person, firm or company, without the prior written consent of A, solicit or provide
contract programming services or software consulting services to any of A’s clients (within the specific
area of assignment) to whom Company employees were assigned through A during the term of this

I would like to eliminate A, what are my options? Thanks for your time.

While I am certain your description is a shorthand of the flow chart or interrelationships, you need to take your documents and pay for a consultation with an employment lawyer. There are several very good employment lawyers in the Columbus area, so sitdown and talk to one soon.
