In this episode I visit with Benjamin Britz, a partner at Hughes Hubbard & Reed. We review the current state of the Varsity Blues prosecutions, including the guilty pleas and those still maintaining their innocence. We consider the evidence presented and where the case may be heading.

Britz advises clients on all aspects of corporate governance including government investigations, shareholder class action and derivative litigation, and corporate compliance matters. He has represented clients before all manner of domestic and international enforcement agencies, including the Department of Justice, Securities and Exchange Commission, UK Serious Fraud Office and the enforcement offices of the World Bank, Asian Development Bank and African Development Bank, among others. His practice particularly focuses on anti-corruption compliance, securities enforcement, and accounting and procurement fraud matters. He has performed internal investigations and due diligence exercises around the globe and across an array of different industries.

Some of the highlights include:
