GWPLLC attorney David P. Weber was featured today in a news story about the Panama and Paradise Papers, and the Netflix Studios film about the investigation. Weber served as the technical consultant for The Laundromat, the 2019 Netflix film about the Panama Papers scandal. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the cast features Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas. Over 140 current and former world leaders were identified in the investigation as having engaged or benefited from money laundering, fraud, tax evasion, corruption, kleptocracy or other misconduct, including the prime ministers of the U.K., Iceland and Pakistan, as well as Russia’s Vladimir Putin, and those closely connected with China’s Xi Jinping. Many of the shell accounts are Russian or Ukrainian connected.
