As a result of the U.S. Attorney investigations, the mayor has now retained some law firms.
The Post reports, “The Law Department has contracted two top-tier law firms to help with the case. “As part of our cooperation with law enforcement inquiries, the Law Department has contracted with the law firms Debevoise & Plimpton as well as Carter Ledyard & Milburn to represent the City and assist in document collection and review,” the department said in a statement. “The lawyers have been in touch with the US Attorney’s Office to advance that cooperation.”
The mayor has also retained Barry Berke of Kramer Levin “to assist in all efforts to cooperate with authorities and ensure they have all the information they need to bring these investigations to a prompt conclusion,” the department said. City funds will not be used to cover de Blasio’s legal expenses, according to officials in the mayor’s office.”
