PHILADELPHIA (January 2023) - Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney continues to expand its White Collar Defense, Compliance & Investigations practice group and the ranks of its litigation section, with senior attorney Megan Scheib in Philadelphia. Scheib has considerable experience at the federal, state, and local levels, including trials, appeals, governmental inquiries and internal investigations.
“We are excited to welcome Megan to the firm,” said David Gordon, co-chair of the firm’s litigation section. “She has been a rising star of the criminal defense bar in Philadelphia her entire career, and she will be an asset to our clients in Philadelphia and across the firm.”
Thomas A. Bergstrom, Of Counsel in Buchanan’s white collar practice, first met Scheib when they represented codefendants in a corruption trial roughly fifteen years ago. Bergstrom said, “In the ensuing years, I have enjoyed many opportunities to engage with Megan in a variety of criminal matters and she has consistently been a strong and effective advocate. She is a welcomed addition to our white collar practice and I look forward to partnering with her on behalf of our clients.”
Beyond her criminal practice, Scheib regularly represents clients in a wide cross-section of heavily regulated industries such as telehealth, pharmaceutical, professional licensing, nonprofit, and state and local governments. The combination of her criminal and commercial experience provides her with the foresight needed to advise clients in all aspects of compliance to avoid litigation, civil penalties and criminal exposure.
“Buchanan was the right next step for my career,” said Scheib. “The talent Buchanan has assembled in its growing team of white collar attorneys, coupled with the highly respected attorneys in a broad cross-section of practice areas in Philadelphia and nationwide, is what attracted me to Buchanan. I am excited to expand my practice and ‘fight the good fight’ with my new colleagues.”
Consistently recognized for her outstanding legal work, Scheib was named a “40 under 40” honoree by The Philadelphia Business Journal and identified as a “Lawyer on the Fast Track” by the Legal Intelligencer. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Ithaca College and a law degree from American University Washington College of Law.
