What does the contract state as to the amount of damages in case of a breach of contract?
What could be alleged would be a loss of future business as well if it is determined that a breach occurred during the contractual period but the damage caused extended beyond the duration of the non-compete. Bot***** *****ne is argument for damages gets very creative in courts. However, the term of the contract seems overly broad and a court may not even enforce the non-compete agreement at this point but there is a risk that the court does in fact enforce such agreement. It would be bad practice for me to guess as to what the other side may seek pursuant to the non-compete and again they could get creative to increase liability exposure.
