Lining up a legal dream team.

For Business People in the Litigious '90s, Sometimes One Lawyer Just Won't Do

MOST PEOPLE HOPE they never have to hire a Sam Perroni.

The 44-year-old Perroni estimates he spends two-thirds of his time handling criminal cases. We're talking headline-making, high-profile criminal cases.

Among his clients have been Del Chandler, former chairman of Capital Savings & Loan, a West Helena thrift seized by federal regulators in 1989; and Howard Wiechern Jr., former chairman and chief executive officer of FirstSouth Savings & Loan Association of Pine Bluff, once the state's biggest S&L before going bust.

Perroni also has defended Joe Calva, the former owner of North Little Rock's controversial Checkmate Club.

This spring, Perroni will represent Don Pennington, the former chief executive officer of Harvest Foods Inc., through court proceedings with the Little Rock-based grocery chain.

Last May, Harvest Foods filed a lawsuit contending that Pennington and a former manager illegally diverted funds from the company.

Perroni countered, saying that "several of these allegations are absolutely untrue."

Perroni might be considered the white-collar attorney of choice in Arkansas. But he is just one of a coterie of state legal eagles who get their names in the news and their clients out of tight spots.
