I was presented a contract with an NDA; non-compete and a bunch of other stuff in it. One of clauses in it was this:
Duration. This Agreement shall be in force and effect until December 31, 2027; provided, however, that this Agreement may be terminated by either party upon ten (10) days written notice.
Only one other clause, the non-compete, indicates that it survives the part termination:
Covenant Not To Compete. During the term of this Agreement and for a period expiring two (2) years after the termination of this Agreement for any reason, Contractor covenants and agrees that Contractor will not:
[.. and the definition of competition stuff follows thereafter]
No other part of the Agreement indicates that is survives for any period after the termination of the Agreement, so can any other part be in effect if the Agreement is past 10 days termination? For example, 10 days after I terminate the Agreement I understand that I no longer agree to a clause such as:
Attorney’s Fees. In the event that either party hereto should employ the services of an attorney in connection with a breach of this Agreement or the enforcement of the terms hereof, the defaulting or losing party shall pay, in addition to any other sums due hereunder, the other or prevailing party’s reasonable attorney’s fees, costs and expenses
Doesn't termination of the Agreement mean what it says in that it terminates everything (except that which it specifically says will survive termination for a certain duration such as the non-compete?)
