Former Lawyer of Martin Shkreli Convicted of Fraud

In case you missed the news over the winter holidays, in late December 2017, Evan Greebel, who was outside counsel to Martin Shkreli’s former pharmaceutical company, Retrophin, was found guilty by a jury in Brooklyn of charges that he conspired to commit wire fraud and securities fraud.  In August 2017, a different jury found Shkreli guilty of defrauding hedge fund investors but cleared Shkreli of conspiring with Greebel to steal from Retrophin.  This conviction offers a stark reminder that lawyers cannot use their legal expertise to facilitate the commission of a crime or fraud.
