Non-Compete Clause

I worked for a company who has an employment clause that states after you leave their employment, you cannot work for any of their clients for 2 years. If this client is no longer their client but it has only been 2 months since I left, can I now work for the company without being in breach of contract?

I am licensed in Ohio and not Georgia, so I cannot provide a legal answer under Georgia law. If you were in Ohio, though, the answer would generally be no, the fact that a client has left the employer will not nullify the restriction.

The best answer I can provide is that you absolutely must review your non-compete with a Georgia employment lawyer before doing anything outside of its restrictions.
