Newsroom - January 2014

After four weeks of evidentiary hearings in Boston in 2013 before a three-member FINRA arbitration panel, David Russell successfully defended a major broker-dealer and five of its current and former executives against legal claims brought by a former broker whose employment had been terminated. The former broker sought compensatory damages of $17 million, to be trebled under the Massachusetts Wage Act, for alleged non-payment of compensation and for alleged retaliatory firing. The broker also asserted claims for wrongful termination, breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, fraud, promissory estoppel, unjust enrichment, and other claims. Not only did the arbitration panel deny all of the broker’s claims in their entirety, the panel awarded our client, the broker-dealer, compensatory damages of $3.25 million. David served as lead counsel of a team that included Wayne Hillis, John Mitchell and Andrea Block.
