NACDL Conference: Panel Discusses Representation Of VIP Clients
By: John A. Schwab
The National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys’ seminar “Defending the White Collar Case: In & Out of Court” is being held today and tomorrow at Fordham Law School in New York, New York. The first panel is discussing representing high-profile and celebrity clients. The panelists include Blair Berk, Rusty Hardin, Elliot Peters, and Gerald Lefcourt and was moderated by Judy Smith. Perhaps the best advice came from Blair Berk who encouraged counsel to resist the urge to walk up to the bank of microphones and answer the press’ questions.
