Q+A: Paul F. Ware 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

On July 10, 2006, a portion of the Big Dig in Boston became the Big Rubble. Twelve tons of concrete dislodged from a tunnel ceiling and crushed a car below, killing a passenger and raising questions about the structural integrity of tunnels in the $15 billion highway project that runs through the heart of the city.

Several months later, Paul F. Ware, L’69 was appointed as special prosecutor to lead a criminal investigation into possible negligence on the part of contractors, engineering firms, or manufacturers. For Ware, it was an opportunity to return to his roots. Ware, a partner and chairman of the Litigation Department at Goodwin Procter, was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Boston and trial counsel for the Office of Independent Counsel in the prosecution of the chief of European Operations of the CIA in the Iran Contra investigation. He also served as special prosecutor in Massachusetts in 2005 for the investigation and trial of state court judge Maria Lopez.
