Nicholas Lefevre, Attorney for Commodore and Atari
Nicholas Lefevre was in-house counsel for Commodore under Jack Tramiel during the time of the Commodore 64, then in-house counsel for Atari after Jack Tramiel bought it.
This interview took place April 10, 2015.
“Particularly with Jack Tramiel, he was willing to give you enough rope to hang yourself. He was not a micromanager.”
“At one point I think we had 160 or so collection lawsuits against us in the initial Atari years.”
“I think really happily back on my Commodore times, less so on the Atari ones.”
“When you made a computer, made it cheap, shipped it out, and sold it, that was perfect for Jack.”
