BCLP Partner Andrey Spektor was quoted Nov. 23 by Bloomberg concerning the second day of Elizabeth Holmes’ testimony. She aimed to show she was a visionary operating at a high level with no intent to deceive patients and investors. Holmes is off to a good start, Andrey explained, a former federal prosecutor. “The defense has three general goals in mind for Ms. Holmes’ testimony: Humanize her, question evidence of knowledge and intent, and shake the jury’s confidence in some of the government’s witnesses,” he said. “There is no doubt Theranos claimed things that were not true, but how much did Ms. Holmes know?” Andrey said. “Her testimony is the best evidence of that critical element, and if the jurors think she is lying to them, they will convict her.”
