Skadden Lawyer Craig Leaves Firm After Inquiry on Ukraine Report

(Bloomberg) -- Gregory Craig, a senior lawyer who oversaw a controversial report that Skadden Arps prepared on behalf of Ukraine’s government, has left the firm, a spokeswoman confirmed.

Craig was the top lawyer for Skadden’s 2012 review of the legitimacy of the Ukrainian government’s prosecution of Yulia Tymoshenko, a former prime minister. The report is central to several legal filings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, figuring prominently in allegations of undeclared lobbying work, hidden payments and false statements to investigators.

Craig, who was the first White House general counsel under Barack Obama, hasn’t been accused of any wrongdoing. He couldn’t be reached for comment.
