A New York state judge has upheld a $450,000 arbitration award to a partner who claimed he was fired from the law firm now known as Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner in violation of an employment contract.

In August 2005, Lee A. Goldberg joined New York’s Brown Raysman Millstein Felder & Steiner as an income partner pursuant to a two-year contract specifying he would earn a minimum of $400,000 in the first year and $425,000 in the second. He was fired in September 2006, shortly before the firm merged with Thelen Reid & Priest.
