Ex-Dewey Exec Drops Hughes Hubbard Ahead Of Trial

Law360, New York (January 12, 2015, 2:14 PM EST) -- One of the former executives of Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP on Monday dismissed his counsel at Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP a few months before a trial of the failed law firm's ex-leadership on charges they conspired to mask its dismal financial condition before the firm's collapse.

New York Supreme Court Judge Robert Stolz granted the request by Dewey's former chief financial officer, Joel Sanders, to jettison the Hughes Hubbard team, led by partners Edward J.M. Little and Marc Weinstein, as counsel in the criminal action, to be replaced by the considerably smaller firm of Andrew J. Frisch.
