Crypto Hiring: SBF, Mashinsky opt to keep same lawyers

Despite conflict of interest concerns, the former heads of FTX and Celsius will have the same lawyers representing them as they continue to battle fraud charges. 

Sam Bankman-Fried and Alex Mashinsky both hired Marc Mukasey and Torrey Young for upcoming appearances in court — Bankman-Fried for his sentencing hearing and Mashinsky for his trial. 

Earlier this month, US prosecutors called for conflict of interest hearings regarding Mukasey and Young’s counsel because court evidence suggested Celsius loaned money to FTX partner company Alameda Research and was paid back with FTX customer funds.

In separate hearings this week, both former chief executives reportedly waived their right to conflict-free representation and said they wanted to proceed with the lawyers. 

Mukasey and Young apparently said at Mashinsky’s hearing that they could fairly represent both Bankman-Fried and Mashinsky, despite the past overlaps. 

The erstwhile CEOs didn’t admit to a conflict of interest stemming from the lawyers, but merely said they are comfortable with their representation even if one may exist. 

New York law says attorneys can represent two clients with potentially conflicting interests only if the clients give consent — as Mashinsky and Bankman-Fried did this week. The pair of lawyers will not be allowed to share confidential information between Mashinsky and Bankman-Fried or use one’s information to the detriment of the other. 

Bankman-Fried’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for March 28 , and Mashinsky is set to go to trial in January 2025.
