MMS Comments to FTC’s Proposed Rule on Non-Compete Clauses

On March 22, 2023, the Firm submitted a comment letter to the Federal Trade Commission (the “Commission”) in response to the Commission’s January 2023 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking regarding non-compete clauses.  Our comment letter is publicly available here:  

Our comment letter focuses on certain background dynamics relating to the Commission’s reasoning for the final non-compete clause rule.  We also provide certain recommendations regarding the final non-compete clause rule that, if implemented by the Commission, would, in our view, increase the effectiveness of the final non-compete clause rule in advancing competition in the marketplace while also protecting the interests of employers and workers under pro-market circumstances. 

We are available to discuss our Firm’s perspective in the comment letter upon request. Our full letter can also be found below.
