Burr's Jon Kane Interviewed for CNBC's American Greed

    February 05, 2013
    Orlando partner Jon Kane was recently interviewed for an upcoming episode of CNBC's American Greed.

    The show, which airs this spring, profiles the largest Ponzi scheme ever run by a woman, Lydia Cladek of St. Augustine, Fla. In the case, Kane successfully represented the Creditors' Committee and as a result, provides interesting perspective on the financial and operational aspects of Cladek's fraudulent business. 

    American Greed is a weekly American television series that airs on CNBC. The program focuses on the stories behind some of the biggest corporate and white collar crimes in the United States such as WorldCom, HealthSouth and Tyco. 

    The Cladek episode featuring Kane is scheduled to air in April. It is one of six stories featured in the seventh season of the series, and it was chosen by CNBC for inclusion over 25 other similar cases.

    TESTIMONIALS

    • “Michael did work for us while I was CEO at Guided Therapeutics and after spending literally millions on patent work, I have to say that Michael is one of the best IP attorneys that I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him. Almost any attorney can get a patent issued, however the real trick is to get a patent issued that has real value and can stand against litigation. Michael is also especially knowledgeable in foreign IP rights and is very cost effective.”

      -Mark Samuels, CEO, Guided Therapeutics, medical device manufacturer

    • “It is my pleasure to recommend Howard and the healthcare team at Burr & Forman.  From issues related to medical staff bylaws, through numerous regulatory compliance and certificate-of-need applications, to the successful resolution of the largest Medicare recoupment effort against a private medical practice; Howard has always been a knowledgeable counselor, keen advisor and staunch advocate for the hospitals and medical practices I have managed. 

      Howard’s record of accomplishment is broad and impressive.  He is quick to respond when called.  His advocacy style is reassuring as he blends superior organizational skills, subject matter expertise and a willingness to listen and grasp the full understanding of his client’s needs and objectives.  

      This recommendation is made without reservation because for nineteen years, when my own reputation was at stake, I have introduced Howard to the organizations I manage.  In every case, the organization has benefitted greatly as he has managed to achieve the best outcomes possible.”

      -G. Thomas Brown, CEO, Eye Specialty Group and Ridge Lake Ambulatory Surgery Center
