Ex-Controller Testifies He Altered Dewey Accounting Recordsstory by Sara Randazzo
Years before Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP collapsed, the law firm’s accounting department scrambled to avoid trouble with its banks by making the firm’s income appear higher than it was, Dewey’s former controller told a jury Wednesday.
In January 2009, with just days to find a way to boost 2008 income by $25 million, members of the department used fraudulent adjustments to get the numbers where they wanted them, former controller Thomas Mullikin said during the third week of a criminal trial of Dewey’s three top leaders, accused of conspiring to defraud the firm’s banks and creditors.
