Non-Compete Agreement

Summary: Our client was an executive and organizational coach employed by a large out-of-state company.  Her employer required her to sign a non-compete agreement that would have prevented her from working for a competitor or opening her own business. Our client hired us when she wanted to open her own consulting company.  We helped her understand her rights and obligations under her agreement with her employer and what she could and could not do in opening her own business.  We also corresponded with her former employer about the problems with her non-compete agreement under California law. 

Result: Through our assistance, she was ultimately able to open her very successful consulting business.
