Strauss-Kahn Guarded by Same Firm as Madoff Before His Trial

Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, charged with sexual assault, has something in common with Bernard Madoff besides a rap sheet: both hired Stroz Friedberg LLC to manage their house arrest.

Not that the French economist or his lawyers had much choice. Strauss-Kahn’s legal team chose Stroz Friedberg for the job at the recommendation of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, which said at last week’s bail hearing that Strauss-Kahn was a flight risk.
