Brian Valery is under fire for his appearance in a 2005 complex litigation case. His motion to appear in Connecticut was based on an affidavit stating he was an attorney at the New York firm of Anderson Kill & Olick and a member of the New York Bar. As it turns out, Valery not only isn't a member of the Bar but there's no record that he ever applied or sat for the bar exam in New York. And now Anderson Kill is scrambling to make things right with its client and to re-evaluate its hiring procedures.
