Rajaratnam Prosecutor Michaelson To Boies Schiller

Apr 3 2012 | 2:15am ET

Yet another lawyer with ties to the Raj Rajaratnam trial is leaving the public sector for figuratively greener pastures.

Andrew Michaelson, one of the three lead prosecutors on the case that sent the Galleon Group founder to prison for 11 years, is to rejoin law firm Boies Schiller & Flexner. Michaelson worked for the firm from his graduation from Harvard Law School in 2003 until he joined the Securities and Exchange Commission five years ago. As an SEC lawyer, he acted as a special prosecutor on the Rajaratnam case, alongside Jonathan Streeter and Reed Brodsky.

Streeter has since left the U.S. Attorney's Office for Dechert.

Michaelson returned to the SEC in January after four years attached to the prosecutor's office. At Boies Schiller, he'll serve as a partner, focusing on cases before the SEC in addition to white-collar defense and litigation.

In addition to Streeter and Michaelson, Christopher Garcia, who headed the securities fraud unit at the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's Office, and U.S. District Judge Richard Holwell, have left the public service for private law firms.
