Statement Regarding the Departure of Michael Bromwich from the Firm

A decision was made several months ago that the firm and Mike would part ways, and his final day had been set for next month, when we will move offices.  When Mike notified the firm of his opportunity to represent Dr. Ford, we mutually agreed with him to accelerate his departure date.  That was done to ensure that his efforts would not be colored by or in conflict with the firm’s substantial work before the Courts of Appeals and the Supreme Court.  Any inference to the contrary—including that Mike was forced to leave the firm because of his desire to represent Dr. Ford—would not be accurate.
