  • Defeated a former executive’s breach of contract and fraud claims against a national retailer client following a multi-day arbitration. The former executive sought nearly $5 million in allegedly unpaid compensation under his employment contract, as well as waiting time penalties and punitive damages. After receiving testimony from five witnesses and receiving almost 100 exhibits, the Arbitrator rejected virtually all of the former executive’s claims, finding that the employer paid the former executive all compensation that was due and owing and did not owe the executive the amounts he sought.
