    • On December 10, 2014, the Second Circuit issued a decision reversing the insider trading convictions of Todd Newman and Anthony Chiasson and ordering the dismissal of their indictments with prejudice. The decision has been the talk of the legal community and Wall Street, as it represents a rare loss for U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in his signature insider trading crackdown - indeed it appears to represent just his second and third losses after the Rengan Rajaratnam trial. This decision is likely to give rise to a number of other reversals of convictions, thereby representing a serious set-back for the U.S. Attorney's Office, and, by logical extension, the Securities and Exchange Commission ("S.E.C."), Co-Author, Insider Trading After the Newman Decision, 2014
    • Employers should give careful consideration to the inclusion of non-competition provisions in employment agreements for low-level employees. The New York Attorney General (the "AG") recently announced that it settled investigations with two companies over their use of non-compete provisions in employment agreements for low-level employees. Policing non-compete provisions is a new regulatory frontier for the AG and it is flexing its regulatory muscle pursuant to § 63 (12) of New York's Executive Law, which provides the AG with authority to enjoin businesses from utilizing "unconscionable contractual provisions.", Co-Author, A Cautionary Tale in the Use of Non-Compete Agreements, 2016
