Usually manager level and up have to sign a non compete so they don’t do this within a set time period

Lol never say never. Just look at all the stories of food service workers who signed non-competes and couldn’t even make sandwiches for another restaurant. They’re absurd agreements, and should be illegal IMO, but tread carefully if you have one.

Could always use a straw man to get around non-competes.

Your MD should know better. They often need to cool down for 6 months to1 year before reaching back out to their clients. Probably easier with a small shop. It is often not worth it to take legal actions to enforce non-compete in most cases. But it can happen.
