My contract has a non-compete clause in it. Can you help me overturn this so I can return to work elsewhere?

We will begin by looking at the non-compete clause itself and your individual circumstances. As a starting point we will consider whether the clause is reasonable taking into account: (a) whether there are any legitimate business interests to protect; (b) the age of the restrictions; (c) the length of the restrictions; and (d) the geographical extent of the restrictions. The bargaining power of the parties is also an important factor.
