    Impossible to say how enforceable your restrictions are without much more information - far too much to post on a public forum, so don't.

    Get yourself some proper legal advice, and quickly. There are various issues here, not least disclosing conversations with 'said clients'. This is a big issue if 'said clients' thought the conversations were confidential - and we are now in a post-GDPR world. Could also mess up your relationship with your new employer.

    Nobody can tell you how enforceable they are - if your former employers carry out their threat, then the court will let you know! Unfortunately it's to late now to advise. It might be a bluff, but in my experience of a former employer starts to make threats like this.... You need legal advice, and from someone with experience of these matters. It's a bit niche, so you'll need to check out a few places. But I'm afraid that of letters threatening legal action are already arriving, anonymous websites of variable and untested quality are not the places to depend upon.

    Of course, the most likely source of the information would be "said clients"!

    'A little naive....' Well, that's one way to put it. Unfortunately the consequences could be rather more serious, so please heed the advice above - get yourself some advice, pronto.

    You also need to make a decision very quickly on informing your new employer if you have not already told them.
