Cosgrove Law Group, LLC files FINRA Claim against ING Financial Alleging U-5 Defamation and Breach of Contract

by Cosgrove Law Group, LLC

August 20, 2012 – Attorneys at Cosgrove Law Group filed a multi-million dollar claim against two ING entities on behalf of its client, a former ING Financial representative and ING ReliaStar Life agent. The claim alleges that the ING entities and another ING representative breached an internal compensation/producer group transaction contract. The Statement of Claim also alleges that, subsequent to that breach, the client was terminated and defamatory U-5 statements were made regarding an office inspection, the report for which varied from the report provided to the client. Until a FINRA arbitration panel rules upon the Statement of Claim, these are only allegations.

Cosgrove Law Group obtained a $3.3 million dollar FINRA Award for a Louisville, Kentucky client earlier this year based upon allegations of breach of contract, defamation, and tortuous interference.
