Government Still Pursuing Greenberg Case 9 Years Later

, New York Law Journal


Maurice Greenberg

Spitzer said "the case against Hank Greenberg was, and is, rock solid." Boies says it's a waste of time and money.

"No matter what happens here, the relief that is sought here wouldn't change anything," Boies said. "It nevertheless is very expensive and it is very time consuming and very disruptive. It is making it more difficult for Starr to grow their business and create the jobs they are trying to create, and it costs taxpayers a lot of money to litigate it on the other side."

Greenberg's legal team also includes Nicholas Gravante Jr. and Robert Dwyer of Boies Schiller; John Gardiner of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom; and David Grandeau, a solo practitioner near Albany who is handling the ethics complaints.

Catherine Schumacher of Kaye Scholer, and Andrew Lawler of Manhattan also represents Smith.
