Gil M. Soffer, a partner in the Firm's White-Collar Criminal and Civil Litigation Practice, was quoted in Corporate Counsel in an article on the reasons why, in recent high-profile criminal cases, general counsels were not indicted even though their assistants were.  Soffer explains that a general counsel's knowledge alone usually is not enough to indict; there must generally be active "involvement" in an alleged crime ("Passed Over: Corporate Governance," January 1, 2007).
