PAT DEWINE, Judge.
This matter comes before the court on defendant Gregory A. Moore’s motion to dismiss pursuant to Civ.R. 12(B)(6). The primary issue in this case is the enforceability of a provision in an employment agreement under which an attorney agrees that upon leaving employment, he will pay his former employer 95 percent of attorney fees earned in a contingentfee settlement. For the reasons discussed herein, the court finds the agreement unenforceable because it violates the Ohio public policy of allowing a client to obtain counsel of his choice.
