Former MCI/WorldCom General Counsel Michael Salsbury found a home last week as a partner in the D.C. office of Chadbourne & Parke. The struggling telecom company’s top lawyer resigned in June 2003 after two independent reports on the company’s accounting shenanigans. The reports claimed that the MCI legal department didn’t provide adequate oversight and safeguards against senior management’s misconduct — including inflating earnings by nearly $4 billion since 2001. Salsbury says he will work with two other telecom partners in the firm’s Washington office. “We’ll focus on regulatory and transactional issues arising out of consolidation trends in communications sectors. There is clearly going to be a fair amount,” Salsbury says, adding that the firm represents some small and midsize communications clients and is looking to expand its client roster to include larger public companies. Salsbury says he has no continuing relationship with MCI.
