UBS bank listed among Holder ex-clients

Newly released documents list Attorney General-nominee Eric Holder's past clients, including a major bank under investigation.

WASHINGTON —

Newly released documents list Attorney General-nominee Eric Holder's past clients, including a major bank under investigation.

Holder's financial disclosure forms offer few surprises, though, and his work for Swiss bank UBS AG has been known. The bank is the subject of an ongoing Justice Department probe. Holder represented the firm in a separate discrimination case.

The government has already charged one fugitive former UBS executive and another has gotten a guilty plea from another.

The company has said it is cooperating with the investigation. Authorities say one UBS executive hid $20 billion in assets from the Internal Revenue Service by using secret, overseas accounts for thousands of wealthy clients.

Holder's nomination is awaiting Senate approval.
