Law Firm headed by Clifford Is Breaking Apart: Clifford & Warnke, the elite 17-lawyer firm headed by Clark M. Clifford, is breaking apart, apparently the victim of the taint of the BCCI scandal. A majority of Clifford & Warnke lawyers are negotiating to join the Washington law firm of Howrey & Simon, according to Ralph J. Savarese, Howrey & Simon’s managing partner. Savarese said the group that is planning to leave excludes those Clifford & Warnke lawyers who have represented First American Bankshares Inc., Washington’s largest bank, and the Bank of Credit & Commerce International, the rogue international bank accused of fraud and money laundering.
