A: It would be rather difficult for an attorney to answer your question. In North Carolina, the enforceability of a non-compete agreement is more case-specific than most other types of contracts. For example, in the employment context, enforceability of a non-compete agreement can depend on factors like the employer's industry, the type of work the employee performs, the market or geographical location that could be affected by enforcement, or even the employee's compensation.

I would encourage you to consult with a knowledgeable North Carolina attorney. The attorney should be able to review your non-compete agreement, collect additional relevant information, and provide guidance based on your specific circumstances.

Good luck!
