Ropes & Gray: In the news again…

November 5, 2009

Law firm Ropes & Gray has gone from commenting on the Galleon insider trading case to being in the case.

Just last week, Ropes & Gray partner Christopher Conniff talked with the New York Times for an article about the Galleon insider trading case, discussing the statue of limitations for these cases.

Today, nine more people were arrested in the Galleon Group insider-trading scandal, including Arthur Cutillo, a former associate at the tony, Boston-based law firm.

Ropes & Gray said in a statement that it was deeply disappointed to learn of the insider trading allegations, and the firm was moving quickly to protect its clients.

Conniff will not likely be publicly discussing the Galleon case any more.
