Onward and Upward
Entrepreneur Magazine quoted Houston Partner Kevin Troutman in its March 2013 Issue in the article “Onward and Upward.” The article discussed leaving a job to start an independently owned business venture and ways to do so while keeping a good relationship with your former employer while building clientele. Kevin commented on the aspect of non-compete agreements. “Always look at what the non-compete agreement says,” Kevin said. “If it defines what you can and can’t do, that’s going to be your guiding point.” Kevin added that many companies do take legal action for those that go against the non-compete agreement. “And the courts do enforce them,” he added.
