Goodwin Procter Hires Ex-U.S. Attorney for White-Collar Practice

Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Goodwin Procter LLP, the Boston-based law firm, hired William J. Harrington, a Manhattan federal prosecutor, for its expanding white-collar crime practice.

Harrington, 38, was an assistant U.S. attorney in the criminal division of the Southern District of New York. He assisted in the conviction of investment adviser Kenneth I. Starr, and the bribery conviction of former New York State Senator Carl Kruger, Goodwin said in a statement.

Harrington also served as the criminal health-care fraud coordinator under U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in the Southern District.

He will join Goodwin’s New York office as a member of its white-collar crime and government investigations practice.

“Bill has built a strong experience base and reputation over the course of his work for the Southern District,” Mark E. Tully, partner and chairman of the firm’s litigation department, said in the statement.

Goodwin had revenue of $695.5 million in 2011, a 2.5 percent increase from the previous year, according to the American Lawyer, a trade publication.
