Shook Obtains Arbitration Win and Attorney's Fees for Trading Firm

Representing a trading firm in a two-day hearing before the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Group's Arbitration Committee, Shook attorneys defeated claims brought by a former member of the trading firm. The former member asserted that he was owed damages related to a seat held on the CME. Less than one day after closing arguments, the CME panel entered an award—including attorneys’ fees and costs—in favor of Shook's client on every count.
