Attorney Michael Campbell Explains Why A Covenant Not To Compete Can Protect Your Customers

“Oh, yes, absolutely. And there could even be a longer period of time on that than just a year. You might even prohibit that for two or three years. But that’s definitely considered an unfair business practice. And so there may be other things that prevent that beside the covenant not to compete. “

“Sure, it would have to be carefully documented, and it would depend to some extent on what kind of information you’re able to get from the customer that came over from one company to the other. They may or may not give that information willingly. They may not really have a dog in the fight, but they may still want to protect the new relationship and not want to give any more information than they have to. And have to… may mean a court subpoena. “

Michael Campbell – Business Dispute Attorney – Pierce County, WA

“No.”
