MIAMI, FL– August 28, 2023- Bast Amron Special Counsel Brian Tannebaum was quoted in a recent article by Law 360, “Trump, Giuliani Legal Woes Remind Attys to Get Paid First.”
Tannebaum acknowledged that some defense attorneys will want the publicity and take on high-profile cases at a lower fee, but he said that, generally, is “a terrible idea.”

Representing high-profile clients typically requires more work than normal, he said, because taking on such a case likely involves interacting with the media, which “is work in itself, even for lawyers who don’t speak to the media.”
