Leveraging Crowell & Moring’s strength in government contracts, deep bench of litigators, and the unique perspective of former government enforcement officials, our team has successfully defended clients from across the country and around the world in connection with investigations and litigation of procurement fraud matters. Our practice spans investigations by grand juries, federal agencies and inspectors general, congressional committees, and other investigative officials and bodies. Our clients range from multinational corporations to closely held businesses, and from boards of directors and CEOs to sales representatives.

What differentiates our team from others is our deep experience across several practice specialties. Our team includes seasoned investigations lawyers who have handled hundreds of high-impact investigations, as well as white collar and regulatory enforcement lawyers who have collectively tried hundreds of cases, a former government suspending and debarring official who signed hundreds of debarments, a former procurement fraud remedies director for a military department who coordinated thousands of fraud cases, and the former chair of the Department of Defense/NASA Procurement Fraud Working Group. Leveraging decades of leading government contracts experience, we strategically align our substantive experience in procurement laws and regulations with our formidable investigation and litigation experience, bringing our clients a powerful capacity to analyze, advise, and zealously advocate their positions.

Crowell & Moring's procurement fraud investigations and defense team has an extensive history that covers the full range of federal civil and criminal enforcement, as well as suspension and debarment proceedings. Our practice includes deep False Claims Act/qui tam experience, along with significant experience with the Anti-Kickback Act, Major Fraud Act, export control issues, false statements, Honest Services Fraud, and Mail and Wire Fraud matters. Additionally, our trial experience brings us the judgment and confidence to win in court when informal resolution or settlement efforts have been exhausted.

Our mission is simple: We strive to resolve government investigations as quickly and favorably as possible. When necessary, we proceed to trial, where we have an outstanding success rate.
