Glen G. McGorty is a partner in Crowell & Moring's White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group in the New York office. With more than fourteen years experience prosecuting and supervising a wide-range of significant high-profile cases, Glen has handled white collar matters such as securities fraud, public corruption, wire and mail fraud, money laundering, tax violations, insider trading, accounting fraud and options backdating cases, and other serious criminal cases, such as racketeering, international narcotics trafficking, and violent crimes. A proven trial lawyer, Glen has been lead counsel in fifteen federal jury trials, and he has briefed and argued over a dozen cases to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Glen served as a senior assistant U.S. attorney (AUSA) in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY), and senior trial counsel in the SDNY's Public Corruption Unit.

Glen began his career as a federal prosecutor in 1998 through the Department of Justice's (DOJ) Attorney General's Honors Program. He served three and a half years as a trial attorney in the Fraud Section of DOJ's Criminal Division in Washington, D.C. and as a special assistant United States attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA), before going on to become an assistant United States attorney in the SDNY.

During his time with the SDNY, Glen led numerous complex criminal investigations and prosecutions in virtually every sector of the Office, including SDNY's Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force and International Narcotics Trafficking Unit. In addition, he served in several senior supervisory positions, managing the SDNY's Narcotics, Violent Crimes, and General Crimes Units, and the Criminal Division itself, where he assisted in the supervision of approximately 150 criminal prosecutors. Glen was appointed senior trial counsel in 2010 by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and was responsible for overseeing various matters in SDNY's Public Corruption Unit, including the federal wiretap investigation and prosecution of New York State Senator Carl Kruger and his co-conspirators.

In 2007, Glen received the DOJ's Attorney General Award for Distinguished Service.
