Andrew Weissmann announces he will be stepping down after 17 months on the job to enter private practice

Andrew Weissmann, the leader of the US Justice Department’s Enron Task Force,
yesterday announced he would be stepping down to pursue private practice after
17 months on the job.

A former assistant US attorney, Weissmann directed investigations into the
collapsed energy trader’s top officials including finance chief Andrew Fastow.
Having joined the task force in January, he took over the role of director when
Leslie R Caldwell left for the public sector.

Sean M Berkowtiz, a federal prosecutor, will become the new director of the
Enron Task Force.
