Jeremy D. Frey, a partner in the White Collar Litigation and Investigations Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the July 11, 2018 Bloomberg Law Big Law Business article, "Steve Donziger, Ecuadoran Villagers' Lawyer, Loses License."
This is perhaps one of the final chapters in what Judge Kaplan referred to as an "extraordinary" case right "out of Hollywood," Jeremy D. Frey, a partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP in Philadelphia specializing in complex civil litigation, told Bloomberg Law.
Given Kaplan's finding, Frey said, today's disciplinary ruling is likely not unexpected.
"Lawyer disciplinary proceedings–and challenges to them–are rarely if ever the main event, but follow along after the crash and complete the wreckage," Frey said.
"If Judge Kaplan is right, this result is well-deserved. Regardless, the other shoe falling can't be a good or happy event for anyone," he said.
