U.S. - Tennessee
Seminal Case: In Murfreesboro Med. Clinic, P.A. v. Udom, 166 S.W.3d 674, 678 (Tenn. 2005), the Tennessee Supreme Court described the controlling analysis as follows:
"Non-Compete Agreements" Tenn. Bar Assoc., with most recent citation to a 2009 decision that focuses extensively on (1) what is a legitimate employer interest for enforcement of a non-compete, and (2) "balancing [former employer]’s business interest against the hardship enforcement would impose on the [former employee] and the risk of harm to the public interest."
