Eugene Ingoglia, a partner at Morvillo LLP, focuses his practice on high-stakes, high profile matters involving government regulatory and criminal investigations, including allegations of insider trading, securities fraud, money laundering and tax evasion, as well as regulatory compliance and complex, trial-ready civil litigation.  He has extensive experience in handling sophisticated securities and business crime matters and has achieved notable results for a wide variety of corporate and individual clients over the course of his career.

A former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York (2005 – 2014), where he was a member of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Unit (2010 – 2014), Mr. Ingoglia served as the lead attorney in numerous federal jury trials and complex white collar investigations.  He represented the Government in the trial and conviction of former SAC Capital portfolio manager Mathew Martoma, in the largest insider trading scheme ever charged; led the investigation in the so-called "London Whale" case that resulted in charges against two former JP Morgan traders, alleging the deliberate mismarking of complex securities in order to hide losses; and led the investigation that led to the conviction of former Credit Suisse executives and traders for deliberately overstating the value of certain real estate backed securities, in United States v. Kareem Serageldin, one of the few successful criminal prosecutions arising out of the financial crisis.

Mr. Ingoglia has tried a number of other federal criminal cases and briefed and argued numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He has also conducted numerous investigations working in parallel with regulators, including the SEC, CFTC, OCC, Federal Reserve Board and PCAOB; foreign regulators and law enforcement, including the UK Financial Conduct Authority; and state regulators.

Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Mr. Ingoglia worked as a litigator for more than seven years at two major international law firms, where he specialized in corporate internal investigations, white collar defense and SEC and other agency enforcement matters, as well as securities and commercial litigation. He represented clients in actions and investigations by various U.S. Attorney's Offices, the SEC, the CFTC, FERC, the NASD and the New York County District Attorney's Office.
