Barry I. Slotnick, chairman of the New York Litigation Group at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, was noted in a recent article published by Law Fuel. The article reported on a case in which Slotnick is representing Martin Weisberg, a former securities lawyer in the New York office of Baker & McKenzie who has been accused of wire fraud and money laundering.

According to the indictment, Weisberg told clients he would invest their money in non-interest-bearing accounts but instead put the money in an account that earned a high interest rate and collected the proceeds "for his own benefit."

As explained in the article, Weisberg has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has posted a $500,000 bond secured by $150,000 in cash or its equivalent.

In a Brooklyn federal courtroom the day the indictment charges were announced, Slotnick said, "At this point, your honor, no one is out of pocket," referring to the fact that Weisburg paid back his former clients.

Also in the article, Slotnick was noted for his "high-profile career," which includes representing subway gunman Bernard Goetz and several defendants in organized crime cases.
