Magic circle firms will almost certainly be among the 45 firms that will have documents subpoenaed in the wake of the bankruptcy of Enron.

Neal Batson, the court-appointed examiner investigating the fall of Enron, has been authorised to subpoena documents from 45 law firms that have dealt with the company. Law firms that may be asked to turn over documents to the investigation are Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Linklaters, Slaughter and May, and Clifford Chance. Others include many of the large US firms, as well as firms in Canada, Luxembourg and the Channel Islands.

The court filing does not accuse any firm of wrong-doing in relation to the scandal and firms so far, have been keen to express their willingness to help.
