Noncompete News: Non-Solicit Relating To Former Customers Found Unenforceable


Less is more. That is the theme of this month's Noncompete News, which addresses a decision by the Georgia Court of Appeals rendered just a few weeks ago. An insurance company entered into a written "confidentiality and non solicitation agreement" with one of its executives. A few years later, the executive decided to resign and form his own business. The executive informed the company that he was resigning and planned to open a competing business, but assured the company that he would honor his non-solicitation agreement. A few months after he left the insurance company to start his own business, the insurance company sued the former executive for, among other things, violation of the non-solicitation of customers provision.
