Legal Question

Asked on: 7/06/13, 1:22 pm

I recently worked at a start-up and I signed NDA with them, they had an idea and they patent the idea and the status of that patent is on pending, also they are failing in business; however, now I want to start my own start-up and the problem is there is almost %80 similarity between my idea and theirs. I want to know if I continue and I succeed, can they claim my codes and algorithms as their own, even though I am not using any code which I implemented for them. I am just worried about NDA I signed and the pending patent. Please enlighten me on all aspects I should know.
