Issues with soliciting past clients from new company?

It would depend on how your employment agreement reads. I would think it would be difficult to enforce though.

I don't have any issues with it. Your previous employer might, but I don't

Did you sign a non-compete clause?
Most clauses have a time limitation, check your agreement and your state laws.
If you have no legal agrement, or if there is nothing enforcable accolrding to your state laws then you should be fine.
Another way to pursue the matter is, if you have an amicable relationship with your former employer, talk with them.

The only time I have ever seen a non-compete clause succesfully enforced, is when the person took a bunch of the staff with him to his new company.
If you keep your contact list on a company controlled file. Always back it up to a flash drive if you can. They are easy to hide.
And if you use your phone/hand held and can receive company email on it. They can wipe out everything you have on it. Back that up too.

If it was a lead I gave them, I had it in contract that it belonged to me in the future. If the agent brought it in, it was theirs and Id never try to touch it later.
