On February 19, 2015, Georges Briguet, the owner of New York restaurant Le Perigord, pleaded guilty to one count of corruptly endeavoring to obstruct the IRS by concealing the existence of his Swiss bank accounts. According to the Department of Justice, Briguet opened an account at UBS in 1992 and moved his money in 2008 to Clariden Leu Ltd., then a subsidiary of Credit Suisse. Briguet’s tax returns failed to disclose the accounts, and he twice denied their existence when IRS agents asked him about them.
