Conflict of Interest

As a designer, I made some marketing materials for a client.  The bill has gone unpaid, but he recently made a small payment.  The lull was over 16 months.  He has never launched the business for which the marketing materials were made.  He stills intends to.
I wish to resign my relationship with him, and work for a competitor.  I have read his business plan.
Assuming I don't base any of my new work on what I designed for him, do I have an actionable conflict of interest.  Is my awareness of his business plan a "trade secret" that prohibits me from working with a competitor of his in the same market?
