Non-Compete Question

I have a non-compete agreement in a Right To Work State (Florida). A client of mine has asked me to go work for them (a completely different industry than I am currently in), however, my contract states that I am not to work for any clients. We have not done business with this client for almost 5 months. What are my options?? This is a life-changing opportunity for me.

Getting out of non-compete agreements

While non-compete agreements are generally enforceable in Florida, there are quite a few ways to defeat them. If the employer breached an agreement, dealt in bad faith, has no business interest to protect, the limitation is too broad, and a host of other reasons may serve to nullify or limit the enforceability of a non-compete agreement.

I have handled many non-compete cases and litigations. Give me a call once I review the language of the non-compete I can better advise you of your options.
