Enron: The End of an Empire

  • Dimitris N. Chorafas

Abstract

In mid-October 2001, the Wall Street Journal published a seminal article focusing on a handful of the 3,000 or so Enron partnerships, affiliates, and off-balance sheet operations. As the energy company’s equity plunged, a Special Committee of its board was formed to investigate the allegations of illegal activities involving some of its people. This was a three-man committee which included two new directors. One of them was a former Lazard Frères partner; the other had close ties to Enron’s Houston-based law firm, Vinson & Elkins.
