Kobre & Kim’s Matthew Menchel joined David Oscar Markus on the podcast “For the Defense” to speak about the defense and successful acquittal of Swiss UBS banker Raoul Weil.
Mr. Menchel was brought onto the case shortly before trial to assist Aaron Marcu and his team at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP. Mr. Menchel describes how the defense team was able to exonerate Mr. Weil despite contrary media reporting at the time. He explains how vigorous cross examinations and various tactical and strategic considerations, including the decision not to put on a defense, secured Mr. Weil’s acquittal.
