Liddle & Robinson Attorneys at Law New York City


On June 13, 2016, L&R partner Blaine Bortnick won a FINRA arbitration award of over $1.75 million, plus over $865,000 in attorneys’ fees against UBS on behalf of a foreign currency derivatives trader. UBS terminated the trader’s employment allegedly for cause, forfeiting his deferred compensation and placing harmful language on his Form U-5. The arbitration panel not only awarded the trader compensation and attorneys’ fees and costs, but it further ordered that his Form U-5 be amended to remove the defamatory language. (Trader v. UBS Securities LLC; FINRA DR # 13-01652)
