Favorable Settlement of FINRA Arbitration Against International Financial Institution

Baker Marquart was engaged by a former director of a major international investment bank to pursue wrongful termination claims. The director was constructively terminated when, after years of successful performance, he was transferred to a different department and away from all the clients—and commissions—he had developed over many years. The case was set for arbitration before FINRA. On the eve of arbitration, the parties mediated. The case settled shortly after mediation. Baker Marquart’s client obtained a settlement more than 10 times greater than what the bank had previously offered.
