Gerald Shargel, whose clients ranged from mobster John Gotti to former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, is retiring from the partnership at Winston & Strawn and leaving the practice of law at the end of this month.

“I’ve tried many, many high-profile cases. I loved trying the high-profile cases, but I don’t need to try any more of them,” he said in an interview. “I don’t need to and I don’t want to. They’re a tremendous amount of work, and to say that I’m somewhat burnt out would be fair.”
