Marc S. Raspanti And James W. Kraus To Present At The PACDL 2012 White Collar Practice Seminar

Posted On Thursday, November 1, 2012

Marc S. Raspanti, a named partner in the law firm of Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP, and James W. Kraus, a senior partner at the firm, will be presenting at PACDL’s 2012 White Collar Practice Seminar on November 9, 2012 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia, PA.

Mr. Kraus will moderate while Mr. Raspanti will participate on the panel, “Reflecting on Whitewater: Lessons in the Art of Negotiating Proffer Agreements through the Prism of a Presidential Crisis.”  The panel discussion will explore the inner workings of one of the most extensive and notorious investigations in American history, including a review of the key characters, the competing legal, ethical and political interests, and the manner in which it all played out on the public stage. 

Ken Gormley, Dean and Professor of Law at Duquesne University School of Law will also participate on the panel.  His discussion of these historical events will provide a foundation for discussion regarding a host of considerations in negotiating proffer and plea agreements, as reflected not only in the drama that surrounded the President and First Lady, but many of the other players, including their friends and business associates.  Dean Gormley chronicled these events in his critically acclaimed work The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr.
