Over ten years ago, in December 2004, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida charged MNR Client Frederic Haller with conspiring to commit wire fraud with several former executives of the now defunct Hamilton Bank. Mr. Haller, who worked in Latin American lending and investment banking for Morgan Grenfell Deutsche Bank, was charged in an alleged scheme to move bad loans off of Hamilton Bank’s books. Mr. Haller’s alleged co-conspirators pled guilty and are serving lengthy prison sentences. For the last decade, Mr. Haller has persisted in arguing that he was innocent. In March 2014, Mr. Haller hired MNR. MNR conducted its own investigation, prepared for trial, made several presentations to the Government in support of Haller’s innocence, and prepared and shared with the Government drafts of several legal memoranda that would have been used in Mr. Haller’s defense. As a result of these efforts, in June 2015, MNR was able to convince the Government and the federal district court to dismiss the case in its entirety against Mr. Haller with prejudice.
