2016Jackson Lewis has prepared an end-of-the-year review of four non-compete and confidentiality issues to watch in 2016 on its website.

Clifford R. Atlas, co-chair of the firm’s non-compete and unfair competition practice group, and attorney Puja Gupta from the firm’s Baltimore office, identify four developments to keep an eye on next year:

1. Enforceability of choice of law and choice of forum clauses may be questioned;

2. Adequacy of consideration in exchange for non-compete agreements with current employees is under increasing scrutiny;

3. SEC enforcement activity; and

4. The circuit split on the scope of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
