Former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald will become a partner at the Chicago office of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, The Chicago Tribune reports. From the paper:
In an interview, Fitzgerald said he is not interested in defending the sort of accused criminals he once prosecuted, a line of work that many former prosecutors move into after leaving government. Rather, he said, he will focus on corporate investigations, an increasingly lucrative area for law firms.
"I'm not changing who I am," Fitzgerald said. "I'm just changing who my client is."
