A Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz lobbyist and a lawyer at the firm, both based in Jackson, Mississippi, loaned money through their investment company to a fraudster who admitted this week to running a $100 million Ponzi scheme, according to court and government financial disclosure records.
The two Baker Donelson figures are Brent Alexander, a nonlawyer lobbyist who serves as a senior public policy adviser at the firm, and shareholder Jon Seawright, a health care and tax lawyer who is also on the firm’s board of directors. Their names have been in the news in light of apparent financial ties between their investment business, Alexander Seawright LLC, and admitted Ponzi schemer Arthur Lamar Adams.
