Robert McManigal is a litigator, trial lawyer, and member of the Government Investigations & White Collar Defense practice group. He represents entities and individuals in a wide variety of white collar defense matters, investigations, and litigation.
I represent clients through all stages of government investigations and litigation, including grand jury proceedings, case management, trial preparation, and complex eDiscovery matters.
Before joining the firm, I worked as a special agent and intelligence analyst in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and as a special assistant United States attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Through these roles, I am skilled in preparing cases for trial and grand jury proceedings, including leading complex criminal investigations, drafting affidavits, analyzing financial records, and interviewing witnesses (which I have led on hundreds of occasions). I have led and completed several complex white collar cases involving economic crime, corruption, money laundering, financial fraud, corporate fraud, and bank fraud. In addition, I am experienced in the review and analysis of financial documents including loan documents, bank and investing records, and accounting software.
I also possess extensive eDiscovery experience, efficiently managing large scale eDiscovery projects. I am experienced with various technologically advanced eDiscovery platforms, and in using innovative tools and strategies to successfully improve the pace and quality of the document review and discovery process.
I anticipate an increase in federal and state enforcement activities in the areas of white collar investigations. In particular, look for an increase in health care fraud investigations related to the CARES ACT, fraud investigations in response to the Paycheck Protection Program, and securities investigations due to the rise of retail investors and cryptocurrencies.
