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

    • "Burr & Forman are very cost effective, but highly competent representation."

      -Best Lawyers 2012

    • “He is a great real estate lawyer. He is practical as opposed to a theorist. He has common sense and is a problem-solving real estate attorney. His demeanor is very calm – he doesn’t overreact and thinks through the issue before he starts talking about it. He is calm, steady and persistent. I have recommended him to others and they have used him too. He is a prize, the kind of attorney you want – not throw his weight around, not center of attention, calmly deal with, keep it low key and move it forward. He evaluates things and possible compromises. He just gets what you need done. I don’t know all real estate lawyers but I know a lot of them, he is as good as any of them.”

    • “Probably the smartest human being to whom I can honestly refer to as a friend. His practice covers securities, banks, investment banking transactions, anything remotely financially related, personal financial investments as well. He is just smart as hell and has a mastery of a fairly wide array of disciplines which is a little unusual. He has the mental capacity to go beyond that. He is also one of the first guys I call.”
