New Year: Great Time for a Lawsuit? 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

Last night at a Christmas gathering I asked friends and family if they had a New Years resolution. The reply was the same. No resolution. Not yet.

Despite my group’s non committal response, I believe many of us are making resolutions.
To take more time for family.
To learn to sew.
To lose weight.
To find a new job.
To start a new business.
To get sued…
I know the later is not really something anyone wants. Or plans for. But if you are deciding to make a switch – start a new – and you do not plan your move, you could end up in Court.
So please.
If you have a non-compete agreement or employment agreement of any kind, have it reviewed by an attorney who can explain your rights and restrictions. And then, you can make the move – the right move, understanding the risks.
Happy New Year all.
