non compete

The statute of limitations on non-compete issues in Texas is usually either two or four years, depending on what the cause of action is. Breach of contract is 4 years and most torts such as tortious interference are 2 years. If there is no written non-compete, then usually the cause of action is tortious interference or conversion of a company list.
