Colorado has specific laws that differ from other states’ laws in matters concerning non-compete agreements and their enforceability. Generally speaking, covenants not to compete are enforceable if they involve the sale of a business, are used to protect trade secrets, or are used to restrict executive and management personnel from competing against a former employer. There are certain other situations in which covenants not to compete can also be enforced.

Each agreement is different and needs to be evaluated on an individual basis.
