Ex-McKinsey Partner Dikshit Who Traded on Goldman Deal Seeks Prison Release – Bloomberg

Puneet Dikshit, who is currently serving a two-year sentence, said in a May 30 Manhattan federal court filing that he received a particularly harsh penalty because his lawyers at the law firm Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel failed to highlight his immediate remorse over his conduct and earlier efforts to turn himself in.

According to Dikshit, 42, this was partly because the lead prosecutor in his case, Joshua Naftalis, is the son of Kramer Levin name partner Gary Naftalis. Kramer Levin lawyers showed deference to Joshua Naftalis, who sometimes worked out of the firm’s offices and had “much greater than normal access to and influence over the law firm and the defense counsel,” Dikshit said.
