I need some advice, I am in the process of setting up my own practice after leaving my previous employer around 8 months ago.
I have since been sent several threatening emails saying that I am in breach of my contract of employment and that legal action will be taken?!
So my questions are:
1) Can I be sued for setting up my own practice when there is no clear detail in my contract regarding this?
2) Who counts as a potential client to my previous employer?
3) If I haven't contacted ex-clients, what am I actually doing wrong by setting up on my own?
4) If I am taken to court I will be representing my self as I cannot afford a solicitor, any advice if it goes that far?
Any help is much appreciated!
