PLI Program #: 295152

Eugene Ingoglia is a partner in the investigations and litigation practice at Allen & Overy LLP. His practice focuses on criminal, civil and regulatory securities and anti-corruption matters. He has extensive experience in handling sophisticated securities and business crime matters and has achieved notable results for a wide variety of clients over the course of his career, including successfully persuading the SEC not to pursue insider trading charges against two different clients over the past year.  He has represented entities and individuals in actions and investigations by various U.S. Attorney's Offices, the SEC, the CFTC, FERC, and FINRA as well as other federal and state regulatory agencies, involving allegations of insider trading, securities fraud, accounting fraud, market manipulation, FCPA violations, money laundering and healthcare fraud.  In addition, Gene has represented numerous clients at trial against the SEC and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including a hedge fund portfolio manager in the recently completed “political intelligence” insider trading criminal trial in the Southern District of New York.

Previously, Gene was an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and a member of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Unit, serving as the lead attorney in numerous federal jury trials and complex white collar investigations. In that position, 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; and conducted the investigation that led to the conviction of former bank executives and traders for deliberately overstating the value of certain real estate backed securities, one of the few successful criminal prosecutions arising out of the financial crisis.

Gene has tried more than a dozen federal criminal cases and briefed and argued numerous appeals before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
