wanted to know if I can operate my own separate business
without violating a non compete clause. Here are 2 sections from a contract
that I signed (did not notarize) from 2008.
If I am or am not in a non compete clause, by what law
8.2. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to constitute any Partner or the agent of another Partner, except as expressly provided herein, or in any manner to limit the Partnership
to the carrying on of their own respective businesses or activities. Any of the Partners may engage in and possess any interest in other businesses or ventures of every nature and description, independently or with other persons, so long as not, directly or indirectly, in competition with the business or purpose of the Partnership, and neither the Partnership nor any of the Partners shall have any rights, by virtue of this Agreement or otherwise, in and to such independent ventures or the income or profits derived there from, or any rights, duties or obligations in respect thereof. Partners shall have the right to independently engage in similar business ventures outside the state of Georgia. Any property owned or controlled by a partner or their agents prior to June 20, 2008 shall remain as their personal interest and not be partnership property. Partner shall retain full and independent control of these properties. Refinancing or changing title to these properties is permitted and will not cause them to become partnership property.
24.2. Nothing herein contained shall be construed to limit in any manner the Partners, or their respective agents, servants, and employees, in carrying on their own respective businesses or activities.
