Porter Wright is representing former Chicago comptroller Amer Ahmad, who pleaded not guilty earlier this week to federal charges stemming from an alleged kickback scheme between 2009 and 2011.

Drinker Biddle, meanwhile, has been hired to conduct a financial audit of the city's finances during Ahmad's tenure.
