Bankman-Fried said throughout his appearance that he discussed policies such as deleting messages with lawyers, particularly former chief regulatory officer Dan Friedberg and lawyers from Fenwick & West, an outside law firm that advised the company.
A lawyer for Friedberg declined to comment. Fenwick & West didn’t respond to a request for comment.
