Background - About (History)


Crowell & Moring was founded in 1979 by 53 lawyers who left a large national firm to begin a different kind of law firm. Since then, we've grown to approximately 550 lawyers in Washington, D.C., New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, London, Brussels, and Shanghai. And we've created some impressive milestones along the way.



Four lawyers from Atrium’s core senior legal team join Crowell & Moring’s Emerging Companies & Venture Capital practice in its San Francisco office.

Crowell & Moring International, LLC, a global government affairs, public policy, and public affairs firm affiliated with Crowell & Moring LLP, expands to Singapore.

The firm launches a State Attorneys General practice, based out of its Orange County office.
