Crowell & Moring is proud that over one-third of Fortune 100 companies turn to us for their litigation and trial needs. Our litigators and trial lawyers help clients across a wide range of industries confront litigation challenges and intelligently protect their business interests.

Each clients' circumstances require us to understand their businesses from the inside out. Our deep understanding of our clients’ litigation and business goals positions us to develop effective strategies that mitigate legal risk, anticipate regulatory challenges, and successfully navigate market forces. We excel in complex matters involving parallel and multi-jurisdiction proceedings. In matters that generate publicity or government interest, we bring both legal and non-legal resources to the table.

Our definition of winning is driven by what our clients want to achieve. That’s why when the stakes are highest, our clients trust us to handle their most critical disputes and achieve the best solutions.

Inside the Courtroom

We’ve built our national reputation as a litigation powerhouse on the long history of success achieved by our accomplished trial lawyers. More than two-thirds of our lawyers regularly prosecute and defend cases in federal and state trial and appellate courts across the U.S. and around the world. From billion-dollar civil disputes, to criminal trials, administrative proceedings, arbitrations and mediations, clients turn to us again and again. While most cases don’t go to trial, our litigators always have a trial mindset. Our opposing counsel come to the table knowing that we’re prepared to go to trial to represent our clients’ interests.

Trials by their nature require agility and lawyers who can “think on their feet.” Many of our litigators have extensive trial experience from civil practice, government positions and pro bono engagements. As a firm, we invest in ongoing courtroom training for associates as well as veterans to ensure that our litigators at all levels are strong courtroom advocates. This all adds up to highly skilled trial teams that know how to win.

Regulatory Strength

We set out to be a full-service firm where trial and regulatory experience co-exist to better serve our clients, with our trial lawyers drawing on Crowell & Moring’s deep-rooted regulatory experience to work with government agencies and law enforcement agencies. Our first-hand knowledge of how regulatory agencies work and think uniquely positions us to help businesses navigate myriad regulatory issues. Our extensive experience defending clients in highly regulated industries means our lawyers can anticipate litigation at the outset of regulatory investigations. We also know when litigation can and should be avoided; when that’s the case, we help our clients take action to focus on their businesses instead of the courtroom. This unparalleled regulatory experience provides the framework of our role as client advisors — and makes us better litigators.

Understanding Our Clients’ Businesses

Clients turn to us for commercial solutions to their legal challenges. We are strategic litigators, which means we focus both on addressing our clients’ immediate needs and helping them achieve their objectives, even as they evolve over time. Because of our long-term client relationships, we know the key business leaders as well as the lawyers who help them achieve the companies’ strategic goals. Understanding our clients’ products, services, markets, and industries enables us to offer practical solutions and valuable insights to address their legal and business challenges.

Whether it’s through trial, alternative dispute resolution, or creative settlement solutions, we work seamlessly with clients at every step of the litigation process to protect and advance their commercial interests. With offices across the United States, Europe, and Asia, we have ready access to local counsel, expert advisors, and other professionals wherever our clients operate.
