The O’Shea Center for Credit Analysis and Investment Presents: The Truth About Mike Milken

December 5, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:45 pm

Event Navigation

In the 21st century, no financier has faced as much public scrutiny as Mike
Milken…yet to many, he remains a mystery. UNTIL NOW.

In 1986, the investigation into Michael Milken, the innovative financier and head of
Drexel Burnham Lambert’s High Yield and Convertible Securities Department, shocked
the world. Yet the media told Milken’s story with no firsthand knowledge of the man
himself or his business, the government investigative methods, the emotional toll his
imprisonment took on him and his family members, and ultimately, his remarkable
triumph over it all—even in the face of a terminal cancer diagnosis.

On December 5, 2023, we will have the unique opportunity to hear the untold side of
Mike Milken’s story through a virtual fireside chat with Richard Sandler, a close
confidant, childhood friend, and personal lawyer who has been with Milken and his
family every step of the way. This frank and personal conversation will focus on
Sandler’s recently released book: Witness to the Prosecution: The Myth of Michael

It also will explore what we can learn about the criminal justice system from the Mike
Milken story, and what insights can that provide on potential prosecution and defense
strategies in the Sam Bankman-Fried trial (SBF trial).

Please join us in what is sure to be a fascinating discussion with Mr. Sandler about Mike
Milken as a person, the criminal investigation, as well as Milken’s strength in the face of
adversity and his amazing comeback.
