A lawyer and a trader were accused by federal prosecutors of running a 17-year conspiracy to trade on corporate merger secrets stolen from three of the nation's most powerful law firms, in one of the largest US insider trading cases on record.
Prosecutors accused Matthew H Kluger and Garrett D Bauer of reaping more than $32.2 million from trades on tips about upcoming mergers and acquisitions that Kluger learned as a lawyer at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati PC, the pre-eminent firm representing Silicon Valley technology companies.
The complaint details a conspiracy that had its origins in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and ended with attempts by the defendants to cover their tracks, including a discussion about cleaning money in a washing machine to rid it of fingerprints.
Kluger also regularly leaked information he learned when he worked previously at two oth

The two companies had earlier set an April 15 deadline to seal the long-pending deal, first announced last August.
'Cairn and Vedanta have agreed that the put and call options shall not be enforceable or exercisable. Vedanta has also agreed that its pre-emption right shall not be enforceable or exercisable,' Cairn said, giving in to demands from Sebi.
