Non-compete and Non-solicitation Agreements

Restraints on trade are not favored in Florida. However,  Florida statutes chapter 542 provides that a non-compete agreement or a non-solicitation agreement is enforcable as long as certain conditions are met. Those conditions include:

  • The restricted convenant (non-compete or non-solicitation) must be in writing.
  • Cannot be over broad in their time restriction nor have a vague geographical description.
