An Irishman Abroad

Eddie Hayes: The Man Who Can Get You Out Of Anything

April 23, 2022
Whether he was representing Robert DeNiro or the estate of Andy Warhol, working homicide in New York City or defending his friends, Eddie Hayes won respect wherever he went. In this deep dive conversation he talks to me about the route he took from being a street fighting kid struggling to survive his abusive father to fighting the biggest cases for the biggest clients imaginable. He reveals why the art business was far dirtier than the mafia, explains why he feels no remorse for “hurting people” along the way, his dealings with Trump, the one time Ghislaine Maxwell made a pass at his wife, the sting he created to fix a problem for DeNiro and much much more. I couldn’t have enjoyed this conversation more. Huge thanks to our mutual friend Marion McKeone for setting this conversation up for me.
