VINCE MCMAHON INVESTIGATION: New York law firm running the Vince McMahon investigation

Posted on 6/17/122 by Colin Vassallo

The investigation into Vince McMahon’s $3
million payment to a former employee to
silence her for a secret affair is being
conducted by New York-based law firm Simpson
Thacher & Bartlett LLP.

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP is an
international law firm headquartered in New
York City specializing in litigation and
corporate practices, particularly mergers
and acquisitions, with over 1,000 attorneys
in 11 offices worldwide.

The law firm was appointed by the eight
independent members of the board after
preliminary findings revealed that the WWE
Chairman and CEO used personal funds to pay
her the sum, with $1 million up front and
the rest over a period of five years. The
non-disclosure agreement was signed earlier
this year.

The independent contractors include Steve
Pamon, Erika Nardini, Steven R. Koonin,
Connor Schell, Ignace Lahoud, Jeffrey R.
Speed, Alan M. Wexler, and Man Jit Singh.

The other members of the board who are not
involved in the investigation as they are
executives within the company are Nick Khan,
Stephanie McMahon, and Paul Levesque, along
with Vince who chairs the board.
