Sarah Bartle is an associate in Crowell & Moring’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group and a member of the firm’s Investigations Practice. Sarah represents a wide variety of corporate clients and individuals in all phases of high-profile criminal matters and regulatory enforcement actions, including Department of Justice (DOJ) and Inspector General (IG) investigations and litigation related to alleged fraud and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the False Claims Act (FCA). 

The breadth of Sarah’s practice is represented in the following examples of her work:

  • Representing an aviation-industry company in connection with a DOJ investigation into alleged violations of the FCA.
  • Counseling a government contractor regarding required disclosures under the Combating Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) Federal Acquisition Regulation provision.

Sarah maintains an active pro bono practice. She represented an individual accused of multiple felonies in Montgomery County, Maryland, and she has also represented parents involved in custody disputes and individuals seeking asylum in the U.S. because of persecution based on their gender or sexual orientation.

During law school, Sarah represented juveniles in delinquency proceedings in D.C. Superior Court with the Juvenile Justice Clinic. She also served on the American Criminal Law Review, where she was an editor for the Annual Survey of White Collar Crime section on the FCPA.
