Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of FTX, will no longer be represented by his attorney at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, the white-shoe law firm. Notably, this will be a big blow to the former FTX CEO as less than a week after hiring an attorney dropped SBF as a client.
As per the reports, Bankman-Fried will now be represented by David Mills, a criminal law and white-collar crime professor at Stanford University’s law school. Interestingly Bankman-father, Fried’s Joseph Bankman, also teaches law at the same law school. As per media reports, Bankman-Fried’s prior legal representative, Martin Flumembaum, dropped him as a client due to unidentified conflicts.
