FTC Proposes Sweeping Federal Ban on Employee Noncompetes
On January 5, 2023, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced a proposed regulation that, if adopted, would essentially abolish employee noncompetes across the United States. A proposed FTC regulation on employee noncompetes has been anticipated since July 2021, when President Biden signed an Executive Order calling on the FTC to exercise its “statutory rulemaking authority under the Federal Trade Commission Act to curtail the unfair use of noncompete clauses and other clauses or agreements that may unfairly limit worker mobility.” Read more.

CLE: The Explosion of Private Equity Investments in Professional Sports
Thursday, January 12, 2023
11:30am - 1:30pm MT
Hogan Lovelss Denver
1601 Wewatta Street, Suite 900, Dowtown Denver
Join Craig Umbaugh and Mark Kurtenbach, leaders in Hogan Lovells’ award winning Sports, Media, and Entertainment Group, for an insightful discussion, co-hosted by the The Colorado Bar Association, surrounding the recent phenomenon of private equity investments in professional sports. Last year, private equity firms spent US$51 billion on sports transactions, including US$3 billion in minority stakes in North American teams.
In 2021, Craig and Mark advised National Hockey League (NHL) team Tampa Bay Lightning, and its owner in one of the first private equity investments in NHL history. In addition Mark advised Major League Soccer (MLS) team Inter Miami CF and its majority owners in connection with their recapitalization. The recapitalization featured an equity investment by Ares Capital and represents the first-ever private equity investment in any MLS team. Hogan Lovells also advised Arctos Sports Partners on its acquisition of a minority interest in National Basketball Association (NBA) team Golden State Warriors in the first transaction in the NBA involving a private investment fund, as well as NBA team San Antonio Spurs in a strategic investment from Sixth Street Partners, a leading global investment firm.
These landmark transactions are the latest in a string of high-profile U.S. professional sports deals for Hogan Lovells across all major professional leagues. One (1) General CLE Credit Pending.

SELECT DIVERSE ARBITRATORS AND MEDIATORS
The ABA and its Women In Dispute Resolution Committee (WIDR) have shared their Directory of Diverse Mediators and Arbitrators ambar.org/widrdirectory for our Members to use in advancing their own D & I initiatives.
Women and minorities are dramatically underrepresented on arbitration and mediation rosters. Because you are in a position to direct or influence the selection of neutrals when a dispute arises in your organization, the ABA/WIDR is asking that you add diverse candidates to your arbitrator and mediator rosters and request, recommend and select diverse candidates at every opportunity. The Directory provides a bank of qualified diverse neutrals with a wide range of expertise and experience. Please share it with your colleagues. The Directory is also available at https://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/marketing/dispute-resolution/2021-women-in-dispute-resolution-directory.pdf.
If you have questions or would like more information or assistance, WIDR has a community of volunteers available to help, including assistance with program material and presentation. Requests may be directed to WIDR’s Colorado representative, Suzanne Cochran, at suzanne@suzannecochranADR.com.
