For the past few months, reporters wanting to know if Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, plans to file criminal insider trading charges against Steven Cohen, the founder of SAC Capital, have started with one person: Ellen Davis, who handles, or handled, media relations for Bharara.

Ellen Davis will have a new employer shortly, Sard Verbinnen & Co., which has handled media relations for SAC Capital for the past decade.
