Summary: Morvillo announced this week that former federal prosecutor Eugene Ingoglia has joined the firm in New York. 

Eugene Ingoglia, a federal prosecutor who won the insider trading conviction in February of Mathew Martoma, has joined Morvillo in Manhattan, according to The New York Times.


Ingoglia announced that he is leaving the United States attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York on Wednesday.

The move comes just weeks after Martoma lost his effort to stay out of prison pending the appeal of his conviction. Martoma started serving his nine-year term in prison on November 21.

Martoma was convicted in one of the largest insider trading cases in history.

Just this past September, Antonia M. Apps left a job as federal prosecutor to join the law firm of Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy.

In the past two years, six other prosecutors who worked with the U.S. attorney in Manhattan, Preet Bharara, have left their posts to join law firms. They were all responsible for helping Bharara secure insider trading guilty pleas or convictions from some 80 people.

Some of those prosecutors who have moved on include Andrew Michaelson, who joined Boies, Schiller & Flexner; Jonathan Streeter, who joined Dechert and Reed Brodsky, who joined Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.

In a press release, Richard J. Morvillo, the firm co-founder, said, “Gene is an outstanding trial lawyer and is an excellent addition to our team. In joining a partnership comprised of former prosecutors, he gives us additional depth to our already significant ability to handle and to try sophisticated securities and business crime matters. We are also delighted to add a former Southern District of New York prosecutor to round out our collective government experience. Gene’s addition further enhances the firm’s reputation as a premier White Collar and Litigation boutique of exceptional trial lawyers.”

The firm was founded in 2012 and since then, seven former prosecutors have joined the firm, including Ingoglia.

Ingoglia said, “Joining Morvillo was a natural choice for me given its vast experience and impressive track record handling complex government regulatory and criminal investigations. They are trial-ready litigators and who take solving their clients’ challenges personally. I look forward to joining the firm and helping the firm’s clients navigate sensitive investigations and complex litigations.”

Gregory Morvillo, a partner at the firm, said, “Gene is a perfect fit for the firm because he is very highly regarded, both personally and professionally, by colleagues and former adversaries alike. He is not only a gifted trial lawyer who can anticipate his adversaries’ arguments, but he is able to explain complicated cases in ways juries can understand.”
