KING & SPALDING ADDS ANOTHER FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR TO GROWING CHICAGO OFFICE

The hits keep coming for King & Spalding’s new Chicago office.

Launched this past September with the hire of former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois Zachary Fardon, the Chicago office has since added two more former NDI prosecutors, Patrick Collins and Jade Lambert.

This week, the Chicago office makes room for yet another veteran prosecutor from the Northern District: Patrick Otlewski, who served seven years and rose to Deputy Chief of General Crime. He joins his former colleagues in King & Spalding’s firmwide Special Matters & Government Investigations team.

Mr. Otlewski led a dozen cases to trial as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, returning guilty verdicts in all. That includes prosecution of an infamous street gang known as the Hobos, responsible for a long and violent crime spree in Chicago. He also tried the largest fraud case in the District’s history.

Previously, Mr. Otlewski was an associate at Latham & Watkins, where he worked with Mr. Fardon in representing a lead witness in the prosecution of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

“Patrick and I worked together at both the U.S. Attorney’s office and in private practice, so I know first-hand that his skills as an investigator and trial lawyer are impeccable,” Mr. Fardon said. “In his seven years at the U.S. Attorney’s office, Patrick led some of its highest profile investigations and prosecutions and achieved an incredible record of success. I am very excited to work with him again, and especially for the contributions he will make to the momentum of our new Chicago office.”
