      Practically universal in the US--not poaching clients is considered a
      fundamental tenet of professional ethics. Of course there are limits,
      which some agencies try to abuse. Make sure the clause has a
      reasonable time limit, that it applies only to clients for which the
      agency has assigned work to you, and that it is the agency's
      responsibility to inform you of the client's identity.
