Collateral damage from the KPMG tax shelter imbroglio has struck Hogan & Hartson and two of the firm’s most prominent attorneys — Prentiss Feagles, co-director of the firm’s tax practice, and Paul Rogers, a partner in the firm’s health practice.
Both lawyers were subpoenaed last month at the request of KPMG’s lawyers at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, who are defending their client over work done on behalf of Bernard Salick. Salick is a Los Angeles physician and entrepreneur who filed suit in California Superior Court in March 2005 against KPMG after shady tax shelters were sold to him by the company. Salick used three shelters, all thrown out after state and federal tax audits, to shield a significant part of his estimated $100 million net worth.
