Interesting article in today's Legal Times: Two Prominent Attorneys Subpoenaed in KPMG Case, by Nathan Carlile
Collateral damage from the KPMG tax shelter imbroglio has struck Hogan & Hartson and two of the firm's most prominent attorneys -- Prentiss Feagles, co-director of the firm's tax practice, and Paul Rogers, a partner in the firm's health practice. Both lawyers were subpoenaed last month at the request of KPMG's lawyers at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, who are defending their client over work done on behalf of Bernard Salick. Salick is a Los Angeles physician and entrepreneur who filed suit in California Superior Court in March 2005 against KPMG after shady tax shelters were sold to him by the company. ...
Feagles says he did "probably an hour, an hour and a half, total of [tax] work," almost a decade ago. A deposition for Feagles -- to be taken by Gibson Dunn partner Michael Flanagan at the firm's D.C. office -- was scheduled for Aug. 13 but was indefinitely postponed.
