A&O continues US expansion with third litigation hire in a month

Allen & Overy (A&O) has continued its expansion in the US with the appointment of Eugene Ingoglia to its investigations and litigation practice in New York, its third litigation hire in the US in a month.

Ingoglia (pictured) joins from US firm Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello. He previously served as a federal prosecutor at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York for nine years and was a member of the Securities and Commodities Frauds Unit.

Ingoglia focuses on 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.

Head of US investigations and litigation Michael Feldberg said: ‘White collar investigations and criminal and civil litigation relating to financial institutions have grown in size, complexity and importance in recent years. The addition of Gene’s expertise in this area further strengthens our capabilities in regulatory enforcement and anti-corruption matters.’

Last month A&O confirmed Gregory Mocek and Anthony Mansfield would join the Magic Circle firm’s Washington DC office from Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft. The pair previously served in the Division of Enforcement of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission as the leader of its domestic and international investigations and litigation and its chief trial attorney respectively.

Mocek advises on a broad range of issues, including regulatory, government investigations, internal investigations, the Dodd-Frank Act, litigation, compliance, and operational risk. Mansfield is focused on commodities, securities and related derivatives litigation, complex commercial litigation and regulatory/enforcement matters.
