My question involves business law in the state of: Arizona
I have been in business the past 9+ months. All agreements between us were verbal (my stupidity and his lack to provide paperwork needed). He has now decided he doesn't want a partner. He/the business owes me monies and before he signs anything showing he owes me these monies he wants me to sign a non-compete agreement. Two questions: 1.) Can a non-compete agreement be made between partners; and 2.) Are non-compete agreements legal and binding at the end of a partnership?
Any comments or direction is appreciated.
