 The Wilmington-based law firm of former FBI Director Louis J. Freeh is to merge with prominent Center City-based law firm, Pepper Hamilton L.L.P., the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The merger is designed to prepare Pepper Hamilton to expand its white-collar defense practice, according to the Inquirer.

Freeh started his own law firm in 2006 and has headed numerous investigations, including one on the failure of Pennsylvania State University to address sexual assault allegations.

The merger follows four years of collaboration between the two firms, according to Philadelphia Inquirer.

Legal Experts Say Louie Freeh’s Penn State Report is Lacking

Some legal experts criticize former FBI director Louis Freeh for not delving deeper into the past of accused molester Jerry Sandusky while investigating the Penn State University sex-abuse scandal, The New York Daily News reports.

Freeh’s report, which was released Thursday, didn’t explore Sandusky’s relationship with children prior to 1998, when the mother of one of Sandusky’s victims told police that the then-defensive coordinator fondled her boy in the shower.

But some legal experts say Freeh should have investigated Sandusky’s time at The Second Mile, his charity for disadvantaged kids that dates back to 1977.

“We know Sandusky used Second Mile to draw together children from precarious situations, and those are the kids who predators target,” Marci Hamilton, professor at New York’s Cardozo School of Law, told the Daily News. “Given the science of sexual abuse, we know Sandusky didn’t start in 1998, when he was in his mid-50s.”

Louis Freeh is a busy man these days.

After being tapped to look into the unfolding scandal at Penn State, the former FBI director is now taking part in MF Global’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, reports the Associated Press.  He has been appointed trustee for the company. Media reports  say up to $1.2 billion in customer accounts is missing from the firm.

Freeh headed the bureau from 1993 through 2001 and is now chairman of Freeh Group International Solutions LLC, a global risk-management firm. MF Global filed for bankruptcy protection after placing bad bets on European debt and is currently being investigated by the FBI over actions that may have violated securities and criminal law. The financial firm asked Freeh to act as its trustee in seeking bankruptcy protection.
