GUPTA TRIAL Rajat Gupta, Raj Rajaratnam and attorney Gary Naftalis


Gary Naftalis is Rajat Gupta's powerful defense attorney. He represented Phillip Bennett in the Refco fraud and brilliantly spoke on his behalf; his client only received a sentence of 16 years after being in involved in a 1.5 billion dollar fraud.

During trial I thought this was an interesting image, the juxtaposition of the evidence photo of Rajaratnam on the phones at his desk with Rajat Gupta seated at the defense table.





At the Rajaratnam trial there was a  similar image. This was  of a Rajat Gupta evidence photo with Raj in the foreground, below.


I thought these images compelling because it  visually showed the connection between the two men.
