I’m currently working for a big US IT company in Hong Kong

Customer Question

I’m currently working for a big US IT company in Hong Kong and I have signed a "Proprietary Information And Inventions Agreement" when I join 9 years ago. I'm going to start a business in USA in the senior home care services, and I have some innovative method that is patent-able. Although it’s unlikely that my current company will have interest in my patent, but just in case, how can I protect myself against such claim to my invention?
