A Harris County judge has temporarily sealed a petition filed by a former employee of Houston mass tort firm AkinMears who alleges that the plaintiffs firm fired him in July because it didn’t want to pay him millions in unpaid commissions and fees for his work raising capital for firm.

In that Sept. 29 petition, Amir Shenaq alleges that when his employment was terminated on July 31, the firm owed him $4.2 million in unpaid commissions and fees for raising nearly $100 million for the firm in four months. Shenaq alleges in the petition that he not only met the goal set in his employment contract, but “shattered” it, since he was asked to raise $20 million in capital from new sources or $40 million from all sources.
