Law firm Fenwick & West has hired its own outside legal team as it faces scrutiny over its role advising now-bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, including from the company’s indicted founder Sam Bankman-Fried.
Silicon Valley-founded Fenwick has turned to Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher as its advice becomes a focus of Bankman-Fried’s criminal defense, according to court documents and sources familiar with the situation.
Nancy Hart and Kevin Rosen, leaders in Gibson Dunn’s prominent law firm defense practice, are representing Fenwick on issues related to FTX, including in the Bankman-Fried criminal case and a federal class action lawsuit, sources said.
