Kelley | Uustal Founding Partner John Uustal sat down with the podcast Legal Speak to discuss why he feels it’s imperative that lawyers take a harder look at cases against corporations, even if the corporations almost always win. Just because the corporate defendant has an unfair advantage doesn’t mean that lawyers should give up.
In the interview, Uustal touched upon the elimination of corporate law enforcement, which is leading to an increase in white-collar crime, and how many corporations have adopted the “Tobacco Model”, maximizing profits over public safety by using loopholes, shortcuts, fraud, and more.
