What I need:
Written legal advice
I've been a consultant (corp-to-corp) to the same company for over six years. Now that I understand the business I want to open a similar company of my own.
My new company will not be a direct competitor but may be an indirect competitor or possibly a customer.
I signed a 3 month contract when I started with this company six years ago but I don't believe it had a non-compete clause. I also don't have a copy of the contract I signed.
I'm afraid that when I start this new company the old company may sue me for a intellectual property violation. I'm a software architect for the current company.
How do I protect myself? Secondly, how can I safely hire employees away from my previous employer?
The company I'm talking about is based in Florida, and I work out on a branch office in Atlanta.
