BakerPlatt, the Jersey-based legal and professional services group allied to UK chambers 7 Bedford Row, has hired former white-collar crime prosecutor John Moscow.
Moscow, who is based in New York, spent 30 years at the New York County District Attorney's Office. He headed the office's investigations into the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, Enron and Tyco.
