Adding to its growing roster of attorneys with government experience, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman has tapped a longtime prosecutor and former Department of Justice lawyer who reportedly helped thwart former President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Richard Donoghue, who served as acting U.S. deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice during the final months of the Trump administration, Monday joined Pillsbury’s corporate investigations and white-collar defense practice as a partner in the firm’s New York office.
