Crowell & Moring's White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement Group has been named as one of Law360's 10 "FCPA Powerhouses" for its prowess handling Foreign Corrupt Practice Act (FCPA) matters. The Law360 editors noted, "With Foreign Corrupt Practices Act experience tracing back to the firm's founding in the late 1970s, Crowell & Moring LLP has continued to make its mark in the arena, recently guiding Ralph Lauren Corp. and a Lindsey Manufacturing Co. Executive to successful outcomes in FCPA cases." The factors considered in selecting the winners included the number of attorneys at the firm working on FCPA matters and contributions to this developing area of law, including working on landmark FCPA cases, as well as client representations and outcomes.
Va. Decision Casts Doubt On Contractor Teaming Plans
May 20, 2013 — Law360
Washington, D.C.-based associate, Tiffany Wynn, spoke with Law360 regarding a recent decision in Virginia's federal court could alter the way companies team up to win federal contracts, by invalidating preaward subcontracting agreements as unenforceable "agreements to agree" in the future. Wynn believes that basing agreements on other state laws, or litigating them in other jurisdictions that may be more forgiving about allowing the consideration of extrinsic evidence, could allow subcontractors to avoid being cut out of a planned team. "Moving forward, contractors need to be really careful about looking at the choice of law and choice of forum," Wynn said.
