A former Epstein Becker & Green partner who sued the law firm over his capital contribution in California state court will have to arbitrate the dispute. Southern District of New York Judge Laura Taylor Swain granted Epstein Becker’s motion to compel arbitration for claims initiated by Thomas Brown, an attorney who left the law firm in 2006.
Brown, an employment lawyer, sued Epstein Becker in April in Los Angeles Superior Court. He alleged that the law firm committed fraud and balked on an agreement to return his capital contribution when he quit. He was a partner at the firm from 1991 to 2006.
