Rajaratnam Prosecutor To Join Law Firm

Jan 31 2013 | 11:14am ET

The last of the three main prosecutors who put Raj Rajaratnam behind bars is leaving the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan.

Reed Brodsky will join law firm Gibson Dunn & Crutcher as a partner in its Manhattan white-collar criminal defense practice. "Reed is a star in federal prosecution circles," Gibson Dunn's Randy Mastro said. "He has tried some of the hardest, most high-profile cases in his offices, winning one after the other."

In addition to working on Rajaratnam's trial, which ended in the Galleon Group founder's conviction on insider-trading charges and his sentence to 11 years in prison, Brodsky also led the case against Rajaratnam tipster Rajat Gupta. Gupta, the former head of McKinsey & Co. and a former Goldman Sachs director, was convicted last year.

Brodsky's co-prosecutors from the Rajaratnam case, Andrew Michaelson and Jonathan Streeter, have already left the U.S. Attorney's office for private practice. In addition, Avi Weitzman, another member of the Rajaratnam team, joined Gibson Dunn last year.

Brodsky joined the Manhattan prosecutors' office in 2004; in addition to the Galleon cases, he also won insider-trading verdicts against a Credit Suisse banker and a Jefferies Group money manager. He formerly worked at law firm WilmerHale.
