“The curious case of Michael Beattie” by Graeme Hamilton, Barbara Shecter, Jesse Snyder and Mark Rendell, The Financial Post

The Financial Post quotes Toronto lawyer, Jon Levin, in an article on the Michael Beattie case.

Jon Levin, a partner and veteran corporate lawyer at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Toronto — which was not involved with Beattie — said new clients usually trigger due diligence searches by law firms. They can range from a simple Google scan to a scouring of databases of individuals and organizations charged with or convicted of serious offences such as money laundering or fraud.

“These kinds of events underscore the importance for a law firm of ‘knowing your client,’” Levin said.
