Bank of America Packs Legal Heat and Booz in Prep for WikiLe

by Derek Loosvelt | January 03, 2011

Just in case Julian Assange comes gunning for Brian Moynihan and the good ole boys and girls of BofA, the Charlotte-based bank has been stockpiling a formidable defense, forming an internal investigation 20-executives strong, enlisting an extensive legal team, and contracting an outside consulting firm (Booz Allen Hamilton). Overseeing all of this is General B. Moynihan, who "receives regular updates on the team's progress."

So, it looks like if WikiLeaks does indeed bring the heat upon the largest bank in the U.S., as has been rumored, BofA will be ready to rumble.
