Hello and thank you for your question today
Are you online with me?
Welcome to the chat. A non-competition clause is first and foremost governed by a choice of law clause. Do you know if there was a choice of law clause in the contract?

Does that make sense?
Does that fully answer your question?
Then have a wonderful rest of your day and a great start to 2013. Before you go, please do not forget to provide a rating in the middle or above so that I may receive credit for my time in assisting you.
