A Korean-American former shareholder at Greenspoon Marder who lost his job last year is suing the law firm for racial discrimination, alleging that the Florida-based firm and the New York boutique it acquired in 2016 systematically denied him opportunities because of his race.

In a complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Jun Chul Whang outlined a history of alleged discriminatory conduct over the 24 years he spent at Jacob, Medinger & Finnegan that he claims continued when the firm was acquired by Greenspoon in April 2016. Whang said that the same partners who withheld opportunities at Jacob Medinger were also responsible for his termination from Greenspoon.
