Billionaire retailer Solomon Lew — back in the headlines for hijacking the $2 billion bid for David Jones — is an unnerving character, with his decades-long feuds and revenge served cold. He is also an expert in not breaking the law.

    Had a fair bit invested as 8th largest shareholder in Fitwear a solly lew company, it too was prised away as a windfall by the said gentleman.

    This is legal you say. I remember Yannon and am surprised Lew is still around. Why the hell is it legal???
