KPMG consultants under fire in Black case

Firm's consultants accused of giving bad advice at fraud trial of Conrad Black in Chicago

KPMG consultants came under fire during the second day of
Conrad Black’s fraud trial in Chicago yesterday after a
defence lawyer said the firm, together with law firm Torys, gave bad advice.

The advice related to the disclosure of so-called non-competition agreements,
which were a routine part of the company’s sale of newspapers and trade
publications, and are currently at the core of charges against Black.
