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.
