I have a non-solicitation/ non-compete agreement with my

Customer Question

I have a non-solicitation/ non-compete agreement with my current company. My client has offered me a position working for them but doing an entirely different field of work that would in no way "compete" with my company. The non solicitation states that I may not accept employment with any entities for a period of twelve months. Does it bar me from employment?

Legally, it does. Practically, consider the following. see if company will agree. see if customer can get company to agree and leverage the relationship. consider if company will pursue this given costs involved and no harm to its bot***** *****ne.
