    Lawyers agree

    Answered . In your additional comments you indicates your concern on non-compete provisions and non-disclosure provisions in a contract.

    With limited exception, Oklahoma courts won't enforce non-compete clauses, provided your not trying to compete improperly. Examples of this would be taking proprietary information from your employment or directly soliciting their customers using the information you lifted from your prior employment.

    Non-disclosure language is a different creature, and can be enforced in many instances.

    Before placing yourself at risk, definitely sit down with counsel for a review of language and your goals, lest your loop hole end up resembling an expensive noose.
