The New York City office of 250-lawyer Dreier LLP was in turmoil last week following the arrest of its founder, Marc S. Dreier, in Toronto on an impersonation charge. After three days in jail, Dreier posted $100,000 bail Friday, according to a spokesman for the Canadian Ministry of the Attorney General. Meanwhile, three Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati lawyers have been retained by a "substantial group of partners and associates at the firm" to examine firm operations and finances.
