The non Non competes are rarely enforced. they need to be very limited in time and space. unless a few miles and months will typically fail. Most employers wont even pursue it and clients are free to choose for themselves! That said the sale of the company doesn't void the agreement as it would carry over but you have the defenses I mentioned. I wish you the best. I trust the answer has been helpful. kindly let me know.
