About the Event

Dirty Gold:  The Rise and Fall of an International Smuggling Ring

On Thursday, May 20, 2021 at noon, the South Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association will welcome authors Jay Weaver and Nicholas Nehamas to discuss their critically acclaimed book, Dirty Gold:  The Rise and Fall of an International Smuggling Ring.  The book details how, in March of 2017, a team of federal agents arrested Juan Pablo Granda, Samer Barrage, and Renato Rodriguez, or as they came to be known, "the three amigos." The trio—first identified publicly by the authors of the book—had built a $3.6 billion dollar business in metals trading, mostly illegal Peruvian gold mined in the rain forest.  We’re also very pleased to have the federal prosecutor who investigated and prosecuted the case—Colson Hicks Eidson partner Frank Maderal—join the panel.  The panel will be moderated by Evelyn Sheehan, a partner at Kobre & Kim and a former federal prosecutor as well.  Please join us.

RSVP and zoom link will be emailed to you.
