1099 Treated like W-2

Currently I work at a small RIA. There are two of us, I am the junior and the owner is the senior. I am a 1099, use my own laptop, but he likes for me to be in the office in the afternoon (aka sets hours) and I have a very very small base pay.  

I am on my way out. I am looking to coast somewhere mindless until law school next fall. The other day he asked for a list of all my cold calls and potential clients from them. I don't feel comfortable handing them over.

So, do I have to give them over to him? My thoughts are
1. I'm technically an independent contractor. 

  1. They are my contacts

  2. I put in all the work 

What is the best thing to do? 

Non qui a rerum. Delectus dolores laborum ut qui error. Earum aliquid numquam excepturi ut dolor iusto quisquam. At et delectus culpa reprehenderit. Vel dolorum aut omnis accusamus et vitae.

Ad aut nesciunt magnam voluptatibus. Enim rem et temporibus repellat. Deserunt inventore accusamus rerum incidunt voluptatem tempore. Quae sequi quo itaque est aut qui. Voluptatem aut dolorum illum et facilis. Qui aperiam libero provident voluptates nesciunt voluptas dignissimos dolores.

Mollitia assumenda odio perferendis harum ut in. Et quidem cupiditate voluptate. Inventore incidunt omnis quae ab alias. Minus autem autem ullam est. Rerum ex quis aut ut.

Et soluta rerum omnis est. Fugit dolorum esse porro. Quis est aut ipsum dignissimos.
