Re: Non-compete/Tortious interference question for lawyer leaving firm. beachdream June 01, 2009 02:05 pm
I am a headhunter not an employment lawyer but have studied some employment law issues. I can say that non competes and employment agreements vary from state to state. I do not know about California but Texas is a "right to work state" and the laws there are much more liberal than a lot of other parts of the country. I would check with a local attorney that practices the field. Make sure they see your contract and understand your individual situation before I would start calling your clients. Most partnership agreements stipulate that they can not contact any current firms clients until after they actually leave the firm. However, as far as I can tell all of them ignore that issue and talk to their clients to verify what is portable before they actually leave their existing firm. Good luck.
