About the Authors

this very delicate and risk prone component of a
case. If you are fortunate enough to practice with
a colleague or trusted partner, identify who carries
the responsibility to oversee public relations and
to manage other professionals involved in the
representation-this will allow for an efficient
and streamlined approach to the representation
overall, while also allowing lead trial counsel to
prepare for the bulk of the trial work without
distraction by these tangential, but critical, parts
of the representation.
_____
These recommendations may not fit every highprofile case or every client, but boiled down to
their essentials, they apply universally to all client
representations: ethics, trust, control, caution,
preparation, preparation, and preparation. It
is true that there is never a dull moment in the
representation of a high-profile client in a criminal
case, but do not let the excitement, pressure
or bright lights distract you from these simple,
foundational elements of your practice.

See Bandes, supra n.1, at 493 ("Loyalties, cognitive biases and
emotional commitments are here to stay; they are part and
parcel of the human condition.")

Often, this latent issue is more dangerous than overt misconduct
on the part of the prosecution because it can be so heavily
embedded and veiled as "practice-as-usual."

See, e.g. Kotteakos v. United States, 328 U.S. 750 (1948); United
States v. Lee, 359 F.3d 194, 207 (3d Cir. 2004).

See United States v. Boren, 278 F.3d 911, 914 (9th Cir. 2004)("The
indictment either states an offense or it doesn't."); see also
United States v. Panarella, 277 F.3d 678, 685 (3d Cir. 2002).

Before raising this issue in pre-trial negotiations, carefully
consider that approach and whether, given the circumstances
of the case (i.e., likelihood of declination or mutually acceptable
resolution), it makes more sense to raise for the first time
in legal argument. Further, be prepared to object in limine
and, as necessary, live time during witness testimony, to the
admission of hearsay on this basis of a coconspirator statement
in furtherance of a conspiracy before the prosecution has
adequately established that a conspiracy existed between the
declarant and the non-offering party and that the statement was
made during and in furtherance of that conspiracy (be careful
where there are multiple conspiracies charged). United States v.
Bourjaily, 483 U.S. 171, 175 (1987).
