Longtime Madoff Accountant Is Arrested - "Federal authorities, deepening their criminal investigation of Bernard L. Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, have arrested Paul J. Konigsberg, a longtime accountant in Mr. Madoff’s inner circle, according to people briefed on the case. At 6 a.m. on Thursday, agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation met Mr. Konigsberg at his lawyers’ offices in Midtown Manhattan and arrested him. He is expected to make a court appearance later in the day.A founding partner of Konigsberg Wolf & Company, a midsize New York accounting firm that is now shuttered, Mr. Konigsberg had a close business relationship with Mr. Madoff dating to at least the 1980s."

“Paul Konigsberg, a 77-year-old accountant, is an innocent victim of Bernie Madoff,” said Reed Brodsky, a lawyer for Mr. Konigsberg at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher. “He looks forward to clearing his good name at trial.”
