thats great thank you, XXXXX XXXXX i get your advice on this please, my contract says this:
For a period of 5 years (the non competitive period) after the closing date, the seller will not either individually or in conjunction with any other person or business entity or in any other manner whatsoever, have interest in, enter employment with, lend money to, advise or permit its name tp be associated with any business similar to or in competition with the purchaser within a half mile radius from the business, to include take away provision.
we think we are in the 1'2 mile radius but not when we drive from each business. we do not do any take away food and obviously they do take away sandwiches and baguettes and also have the coffee shop but we are a restaurant and bar, can they still close us down, is we are completely different?
thank you for your help!
