Who is Christopher Kamon?

As mentioned above, Christopher Kamon, 49, is a former Girardi Keese CFO and was in charge of the firm’s assets during his tenure. He worked for the law firm around the time when the firm was revealed to have been involved in multiple thefts from its clients. The law firm had allegedly stolen tens of millions, and ex-clients accused those associated with the firm of running a Ponzi scheme. According to the complaints, Tom Girardi, the owner, and his associates secured a financial settlement in a legal dispute, but when it came time to pay it out, they would decline with excuses. Even ‘RHOBH’ housewife and the ex-wife of Tom, Erika Jayne, was held accountable for reaping the benefits of the firm’s embezzlement.
