Should we draw up any type of contract between both parties while we are doing the contract work that will remove any type of liability? LLC is filed with the state. To this date, they have been very specific even with no non-solicitation, to not contact or have any involvement with their clients. We are concerned that they could come back on our business after we do the contract work and accuse our business of stealing their clients, if we work with any of them in the future. Is there any possibility that they could take our new business to court if that happens? Our business will not typically do any type of "contract" work, we don't want to get into an issue that could give us problems.
So your saying that in the absence of any type of agreement, they cannot hold our company liable for soliciting their clients either during or after our contract period? They asked us to remove their clients from our social media accounts while we were employed, as a contractor, would they not be able to do this? Thanks.
