Report: High-profile lawyer added to MS roster

Microsoft has hired trial lawyer Dan K. Webb to represent it in the remedy phase of the U.S. government's landmark antitrust case against it, the Washington Post newspaper reported Thursday.

Webb, a partner at Chicago law firm Winston & Strawn, has handled such high-profile cases as the prosecution of retired admiral John Poindexter during the Iran-Contra affair, and has represented Philip Morris Companies Inc. on tobacco-related litigation and General Electric Co. in a criminal price-fixing trial.

Webb is expected to make his first appearance representing Microsoft today, when lawyers for the company are due to meet with government prosecutors before U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly to agree on a schedule for the remedy phase of the case, the Post reported.
