Summary/Abstract "Eat What You Kill is the story of John Gellene, a rising star and bankruptcy partner at one of Wall Street's most venerable law firms. But when Gellene became entangled in a web of conflicting corporate and legal interests involving one of his clients, he was eventually charged with making false statements, indicted, found guilty of a federal crime, and sentenced to prison." "Milton C. Regan, Jr. uses Gellene's case to prove that such conflicting interests are now disturbingly commonplace in the world of American corporate finance."--BOOK JACKET
