I used to work for a medical products company. About 7 weeks ago, my employer informed me I was out of a job because he was selling the business. He is a distributor and is selling out to the manufacturer. I am wondering if I am within my legal right to contact another manufacturer so that I may distribute a "similar" product. I am well aware of our customer list. I am also wondering if legally the manufacturer that is buying out my boss' company can sue me because I have that information. None of the products are patented to my knowledge.
