As he seeks to salvage as many millions as possible from his contract with NBC, ousted Today Show host Matt Lauer is being represented by William Zabel, a New York lawyer with a gift for amplifying and defending the wealth of the very rich.

Lauer was fired after he was accused of sexually harassing a woman at work, and other accusers have since come forward. The New York Post first identified Zabel as Lauer’s personal lawyer, and reported that Lauer has also been in contact with another attorney, Sag Harbor, New York-based criminal defense lawyer Edward Burke Jr.
