Brian Blais Discusses Elizabeth Holmes Trial in the Wall Street Journal
Litigation & enforcement partner Brian Blais was quoted in the Wall Street Journal on October 26 in an article examining the revelations that have come out of the first half of Elizabeth Holmes’ criminal fraud trial. Brian noted that jurors’ opinions could easily shift if Holmes decides to take the stand, as white collar trials often turn on the defendant’s testimony alone. “If she testifies, that is the make-or-break of the trial regardless of the three months that come before it,” he said. Brian spent more than a decade as a federal prosecutor in New York before rejoining Ropes & Gray as a partner in January.
