Insider-Trading Prosecutor To Join Law Firm

Dec 13 2013 | 10:07am ET

Another top prosecutor has left the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan.

David Massey is set to join Richards Kibbe & Orbe after nine years at the country's most prominent federal prosecutor's office. During his time there, Massey was involved in the government's hedge-fund insider-trading crackdown, working on the cases of former FrontPoint Partners hedge fund manager Joseph Skowron and expert-network consultant John Kinnucan.

Both men eventually pleaded guilty.

Massey is at least the sixth prosecutor to leave the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's Office over the last two years. Christopher Garcia, Andrew Michaelson, Jonathan Streeter and Avi Weitzman left for private practice last year, and Reed Brodsky earlier this year.
