Feldman is Clifford Chance’s head of pro bono for the Americas. He has hit back at the US Government’s unprecedented attack on law firms’ handling of the Guantanamo Bay pro bono efforts.
Some of Wall Street’s finest law firms, as well as the UK’s Allen & Overy (A&O) and Clifford Chance, have been handling the cases, which have become the centre of a political storm.
While A&O has cowered on the sidelines, Feldman at Clifford Chance has steamed in with the ferocity you’d expect from a seasoned white-collar crime litigator.
Whether you’re sitting in Guantanamo Bay or you’re under investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, that’s exactly the sort of lawyer you’d want to fight your corner.
