IN MEMORIAM: Harry Walters
May 20, 2019

OUTSIDE NEWS - As testifying experts, SER members often get to see skilled attorneys in action. If you never saw Harry Walters try an arbitration case, you missed seeing a true professional at work. If you never met Harry Walters, you missed meeting a gracious individual -- a person of honor, wit, pride, intellect, practical insight and personal courage. Tragically, Harry Walters passed away at the end of last week -- at just 60 years of age. A Managing Director at Morgan Stanley, Harry was co-head of Wealth Management Litigation, a team that represents Morgan Stanley and its employees in court and arbitrations, and before regulators. Harry started in-house with a predecessor firm in 1989 after six years in private practice. A graduate of Fordham College and Columbia Law School, Harry was a past member of FINRA's Dispute Resolution Task Force and its standing National Arbitration and Mediation Committee. He was a frequent speaker and moderator of arbitration and mediation workshops at SIFMA and at PLI, NYSBA and City Bar seminars. In March 2018, he joined the SAC Board of Editors and recently contributed to an article by his colleague, Jeremy S. Winer, that was featured in the SAC newsletter, titled: No Right to be Heard? FINRA’s Office of Dispute Resolution Says Arbitration Panels Can Deny Expungement Requests Without a Hearing.
