Re: contacting former clients

No unless there is an agreement to that effect. Some employers make you sign a confidentiality and agreement to not compete, and such agreements may bar you to contact former clients.

Re: contacting former clients

It may be if client contacts are kept and treated as confidential information. Then using that information could be considered as theft of trade secrets.
