That man was hired by Vinnie Ricorso to present a (false) affidavit which stated that Carl Grissom had entrusted all businesses to Ricorso. During the press conference outside Gotham City Hall, Ricorso's Lawyer confirmed everything, and told the press that the signature of Grissom was perfectly regular and legitimate. At that moment the Joker appeared, confirmed what was said by Ricorso's Lawyer, and said that Grissom had signed with his dead hand and his blood. Then the Joker hit Ricorso in the throat with a poison quill pen, and killed him. After that, the Joker's mimes opened fire against the crowd. This man and Ricorso's other associates were the first victims of the Joker goons, who concentrated all their opening fire on the group.
