Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience. Yes I can speak to you on the phone however all calls have an additional charge. its a modest charge so if you would prefer to talk i am happy to get the offer sent to you
Ok, thank you for the detail. what is the legal question you would like me to address? If the contract is only a page or two I will review you it as part of this Q & A however if it is a long document JA will only allow me to look into it under their premium service for reviewing and advising on legal documents
These clauses are effectively providing for what would customarily appear in a non-compete clause. So yes they could that. If the company you are looking to be partner in is not in the financial sector and you do mention it specifically in that clause 3.4 you will be fine to work for them as sole trader and not as a partner with shares unless you are only getting 5%. 50% ownership will breach these terms and therefore you will want to make sure there is specific exclusion for that company as its going to be know prior to you starting your work in January 2020.
They have provided these in red and therefore are not expecting you to amend these but you are negotiating with them and I think if the company you are talking about is not in the financial sector you stand a good chance of getting them to agree for you to have the 50% as opposed to the 5%.
