Dewey, which once had more than 1,400 lawyers, could not cut costs quickly enough to combat a plunge in revenue and mounting debt following the financial crisis. Prosecutors from the Manhattan District Attorney's office say the defendants overstated revenue and created fraudulent accounting entries to hide the true financial condition of the firm, which filed for bankruptcy in 2012. The trio are accused of stealing nearly $200 million from 13 insurance companies and two banks, HSBC Holdings Plc and Bank of America Corp. Defense attorneys have argued their clients fully intended for Dewey to pay back the money, and say the criminal investigation was set into play by disaffected partners seeking to make them the scapegoats for the firm's problems.
