Advantages and disadvantages of noncompete clause:
1- Illegal in some states
3- Protection against competition..
example:Suppose that a former employee of a small law firm focused on intellectual property law for small businesses signed a non-compete clause that disallowed competition for a five-year term anywhere in the state in I.P. law. Reasonable in many states may be a period of two years in a 100-mile radius in small-business I.P. law. Some states will amend the non-compete clause to what is reasonable, while other states will void the entire non-compete agreement.
