Prosecutors have further charged a former Baker & McKenzie partner, indicted last fall on securities fraud charges, with stealing from a client escrow account. Martin E. Weisberg, then a corporate partner in Baker & McKenzie's New York office, was charged in October with participating in an illegal short-selling scheme. Tuesday, prosecutors said they had since uncovered Weisberg's involvement in a separate fraud scheme. At his arraignment Tuesday on the new charges, Weisberg pleaded not guilty.
