New York Lawyer Jailed in Toronto for Impersonation
The sole equity partner in New York law firm Dreier LLP ("a law firm for demanding clients who expect results") got himself arrested and jailed in Toronto for criminal impersonation. The AM Law Daily says Marc Dreier is charged with misrepresenting himself at a Tuesday pension plan meeting between the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan and Fortress Credit Opportunities: "When the real person arrived, police were called." The Daily says "Partners at the firm either declined to comment or hung up on a reporter seeking comment Thursday."
A "disheveled-looking" Dreier, who was not allowed to make a collect phone call while in custody, finally made bail this morning, per the National Post. But the Dreier LLP holiday party has been cancelled.
