Government regulators have never been so sharply focused on the conduct of corporations than they are now. And with business booming, some Connecticut law firms are eager to add attorneys to defend white-collar clients.
New Haven's Wiggin and Dana recently did just that, bringing aboard two former federal prosecutors as partners to help clients in cases involving corporate compliance, government investigations and internal audits.

James I. Glasser joined the firm after 19 years in the U.S. Attorney's office in Connecticut, most recently serving as counsel to U.S. Attorney Kevin O'Connor and chief of the criminal division.  Joseph W. Martini arrived at Wiggin from Pepe & Hazard in Hartford, for whom he practiced after serving as federal prosecutor for nine years.
