The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) has announced that it will honor Corporate Investigations & White Collar Defense Partner Richard Donoghue with the 2022 Outstanding Prosecutor award during the association’s upcoming annual meeting.

The NYSBA announcement noted that Donoghue, the former Acting U.S. Deputy Attorney General and former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, “played a critical role in refuting claims of a ‘stolen’ election in 2020 by then-President Donald Trump and his allies” and “defied orders to press false claims of federal election fraud.”

“In recognition of his personal and professional character in the face of unprecedented challenges to democracy, the Criminal Justice Section is pleased to honor Richard Donoghue’s example of bravery in defense of justice,” said NYSBA Criminal Justice Section chair David Louis Cohen.

Drawing on three decades of experience in both the public and private sectors, Donoghue represents corporations and senior executives facing government and internal investigations and helps clients resolve sensitive and complex litigation challenges.
