What Makes a Non-Compete Agreement Enforceable?

what-are-enforceable-non-compete-agreements.html

To be enforceable non-compete agreements must (a) serve a legitimate business purpose, and (b) be reasonable. To properly determine and evaluate the legitimacy of a business purpose and the reasonableness of the non-compete, courts will evaluate the agreement and relationship that gave rise to the non-compete, for example, is the non-compete the result of an employment relationship, a shareholder / partnership relationship, or a business relationship?
